Lightroom Classic hard drive not showing sub folders

When I go to import files from an external hard drive, just on one of them when I click the arrow to get to sub folders, it shows none. When I click on include sub folders, I get lots of font images and Adobe stock images etc but not my folders. On every other hard drive attached to the computer, I don't have this problem. Any ideas?

What kind of drive is this that 'Show subfolders' will show Adobe stock images and font images?

It's an 8TB Western Digital USB drive. I have no idea where all those images are coming from...

here's a screenshot. The hard drive that doesn't show the files is RE 2017. Notice Photos shows fine as well as WORK SSD.

You did not answer my question and the screenshot does not do that either. I asked what kind of drive it is, given the fact that you see things like font images. Is it a Time Machine backup drive perhaps? These drives are owned by Time Machine, and so Lightroom Classic does not have the usual permissions to read or write to it.

So, the disk in question is an external HDD, attached via USB to your main computer, and it does not show the folders that are on this HDD, right? This disk is a different disk from the other disks/folders,  (Work, Photos, etc,..), right?

Have you checked the read/write permissions?

It happened suddenly. One day it was fine then it wasn't. I had tried this before but last night I quit LR and opened it and now all is good... Who knows...
