Here you're doing a listing of the contents of Madonna/Music

> noah at tsunami:~$ ls /mnt/mybook-music/Madonna/Music | wc -l
> 2273
> noah at tsunami:~$ ls /mnt/mybook-music/ | wc -l
> 2273
Not sure why you're getting the same number for both of these  
directories, that is interesting.

> Madonna/Music
> noah at tsunami:~$
Here you're having ls show you *only* the information for the  
directory you specify (in this case /mnt/mybook-music/Madonna/Music)   
the -d switch tells ls to show information about the directory itself,  
not its contents.  Try doing ls -l /mnt/mybook-music/Madonna/Music to  
get a list of what's *in* that directory.
