When I used the ls command, it returns an empty list to me, just like this:

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>ftp
Connected to
220 欢迎使用 Quick 'n Easy FTP Server
User ( admin
331 admin 需要密码
230 用户已成功登录。
ftp> ls
200 Port 命令成功。
226 传输完成

I made sure that the folder isn't empty and all firewalls are turned off.

You can, at least, verify (possible) permission and ownership problem - files exist, but with "these" owner and permissions (no 'r' totally) they way invisible. Check also server-logs for possible unrelated errors and current folder for x permissions – Lazy Badger Mar 26 '12 at 4:27

Try to 'put' a file there, and see if ls / dir then sees it.
