I'm having a strange problem, and if anyone could help me I would be very greatful. I have several albums on my computer, I've saved the cover images for all them as folder.jpg. Lately I've noticed that many of them have disappeared, or aren't visible to me at least. Whenever I try to save a new file in the same folder as folder.jpg it gives me the option to overwrite as if the file is still there, but there isn't a folder.jpg file visible. I've tried going to 'folder options' and clicking on 'show hidden files and folders' but that hasn't helped. I've tried searching for a solution to this problem on google, but I haven't had any luck.

I'm using Windows XP Home Edition with SP2 if that helps

Go Start > Run and type "regsvr32 shmedia.dll".
Go Start > Run and type "regsvr32 shimgvw.dll".

This fix is for when the "thumbnail" view is not working. Hopefully it may help your situation.

Sounds to me like you are using one filename...and you overwrite it every time you use the same filename.

Is this correct?

What's the path you are saving to?
