Been looking at some of my old pics which are on CD or DVD. I'm using Vista and when the pics come up I can't get them as thumbnails which I can view, only as icons which all have the same front to them. On clicking on an icon I do get the full picture of course.

I remember on XP that when the pics came up that, in View, one of the options was Thumbnails but this is not present in Vista. There are only Tiles, Details and various sizes of Icons. Funny thing is that in Pictures on the PC everything is visible as thumbnails when I select any of the various sizes of Icons but not when I'm viewing the CD or DVD.

In Organize > Folder and Search Options > View > Always Show Icons, Never Thumbnails is not checked but it makes no difference. I've also tried Restore Defaults.

As far as I can see all the settings are identical. Am I missing some vey simple thing here?
