    It may be that your windows OS is regarding the images as "hidden files"... ?

    I read this today:

    Auto Update Your Products

    Updating your products can be a pain, and a very time consuming one. Constantly having to check if your products are in stock, what new products there are, price changes etc. The administration for making sure your shop products are up to date can be a nightmare, especially if you have hundreds or thousands of products. An impossible task to be done accurately and quickly.

    The majority of suppliers can provide a data feed containing their products. For zencart shop owners this can be a life saver. However, what you find is that the data feed is not compatible with importing into Zen Cart so manual amendments have to be made to ensure the file can be imported. Whats more, you have to look for new and amended products where you have to manually upload the images.

    We will create a zencart module specific to your suppliers data file, to ease the workload of updating your products. Features, may include:

    Automatically take your suppliers data file and rearranges it into a format compatible for importing into zencart.
    Automatically import the new data feed into your zencart shop, updating/adding products.
    Automatically copies the product images from the suppliers website to your hosting space.

    Once the addon is implemented, cron jobs are used to run these tasks. Saving you time and money!

    The company offering this wonderful solution is iwebshop but it sounds commercial and expensive. If you want to discover more then read this blog: http://www.dropshipchat.co.uk/zencar...your-products/

    I could not find any details on the iwebshop link above...but Inventory Source has a Zen Cart plug-in which loads and updates the products on the zen cart site automatically with daily syncs. It also has a user interface from the account which controls the feed (category, price, brand, etc) between the supplier and what updates on your site.

    The only issue would be your supplier has to already be integrated into the service, but most major ones are.
