I'm sure this is something minor I missed or messed up when installing a piece of software...any way. All of a sudden when I try to view jpeg's in thumbnail format in My Computer ( Windows 2000 OS) it just gives me the jpeg icon instead of the actual picture. I thought it might have something to do with the associated program, but I have changed it to a couple of different apps that open jpegs, but still an icon instead of the picture.
I did not find a thumb.db file in the directory in question. I did find that file in other directories which I did delete, but it didn't help me. I thought the problem might be the device. I am trying to view them through my San Disk Mini cruzer. I moved them to the C:\ drive but that did not solve the problem.
Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for your help.
I posted a question on a very similar problem quite a while ago, and the solution was to find and delete the file thumbs.db in the directory where the graphics files are, then log off and log on again. Windows re-creates thumbs.db and your thumbnails reappear
