    How 'bout using a file manager like Astro or Estrongs. Do they display then?

    Having apps installed on the SD card is more than just having the files on the card. The OS maintains information about the installed apps. You've lost this information due to the wipe.

    For rooted systems, a program like Titanium Backup will save and restore applications and their data. Maybe someone else knows about something for unrooted systems.

    Under the "Privacy" setting in the phone there are options to backup your info and auto restore. If you select those, you will automatically get all of your installed apps back when you wipe your phone and redo it with the same Google account.
