I have lots of pics on CD and DVD. They used to appear as thumnails when the CD/DVD was inserted but now they only appear as icons no matter which "View" I use. Often, on changing the "View" the thumbnails appear for a split second but then revert back to icons.

I have been into Folder and Search Options > View and made sure that "always show icons, never thumnails" is not ticked. Strange thing is that the pics on my computer DO appear as thumnails but not those on the CD/DVD. I am using Vista but when I put the CD/DVD into an XP computer the pics show up as thumnails.

The only thing that has changed is that I had to reinstall Quicktime and the problem seemed to start about then.

Is it possible that Quicktime has somehow upset things?

You can do a system restore to try and see if it would fix it. Quicktime is bothersome, I wouldn't have it installed if itunes didn't require it.

I don't what exactly would have caused it. The thing I think would be most likely is Vista sets a quota on thumbnail sizes that it saves, and then won't make new thumbnails because the reserved space is full.
