you should know why! con is reserved name and other name are the same for example you can't make folder name with com1 or com2 you can learn more about this case

You CAN name a folder CON, but you have to do it from inside command prompt (Start -> Run -> write COMMAND.EXE)

When the black box appears, write this at the C: prompt:

md \\.\\c:\con
then

dir c:
then

rd \\.\\c:\con

The reason behind this stupidity is old DOS operating with consoles as remote hosts.
Hope that helped you out!
