JPEGS not showing in thumbnailed folder

by heavylee / February 9, 2009 1:51 AM PST

On Vista, my jpegs aren't showing up. You have to click the thumbnailed photo (which is displaying as a default landscape), in order to see the jpeg. This makes browing pictures more time consuming. Any advice.

The folder is on a network, CD, DVD, etc.
No word when that will be fixed.

There is a laundry list somewhere.

The other reasons revolve around the encoding of the images and permissions to folders, etc.

It's not an unknown area of discussion but for now, today there is not a single do this cure.

Here's what I've done.

I make a new folder and toss 1 file in there from a known good source so we know microsoft can decode it. Now that I have a folder that thumbnaails I add more files there till it breaks then I move the last batch out and see if I can figure out which file breaks it.
