check that there are no "bad" characters such as slashes etc. these can interfere with OS X due to being related to unix. not sure what you mean by "folder different looking like yellow". i pressume you mean the icon rather than the text of the folder.

Here is the character info: The only illegal character for file and folder names in Mac OS 9 and OS X is the colon :

File and folder names may be up to 31 characters in length in System 9.
File and folder names may be up to 151 characters in length in OS X.

File and folder names are not permitted to begin with a dot . in OS X.

So it doesn't seem like a naming problem, my guess is a permissions issue. Have you taken a peak at Get Info --> Permissions?
