How to view source files in the library

I want to backup my source files in an AS/400 server to my PC using FTP. When using FTP I can't see any of the source files in the library even though they actually exist. Can you please tell me the possible reasons for this?
Source files are supposed to be visible unless you don't have authorization for these files. The only difference between source files and data files is that source files are multi-member so "GET QCLSRC" will not work but GET QCLSRC.membername or MGET QRPGSRC.* will work.
