Video thumbnails no longer showing up in D drive anymore

Q: Video thumbnails no longer showing up in D drive anymore

Either yesterday or the day before, the video thumbnails for all of my videos stopped showing up in the D drive and do not know why that is. Instead, it?s the default movie clapboard thumbnail for Movies & TV and I've tried everything and still nothing worked.

Does anyone know why this is happening to me?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Hey all!!

On my desktop the album covers show up in my music directories when in thumbnail view, but on my laptop they do not.

Any ideas why?

A:Why are the album covers no longer showing on my thumbnails?

Well, after adding all my MP3s to WMP some show up and some don't. These are 90% albums that I ripped myself from my own CDs.

As the title says. It happened all of a sudden.

I've tried going into folder options and unticking and ticking.
I've ran disk clean up
I've ran sfc /scannow
I've installed some codecs

I did find something about editing the registry but when I was following the instructions I couldn't find the specified area mentioned in the article. So I haven't actually change anything in my registry yet.

Thanks,
Jason.

Any keys and/or sub-keys in the Registry which you don't have but need in order to rectify a problem, can be manually created.

Ok... i have some computer knowledge, and i can google with the best of them but I haven't found a complete fix to my problem... here we go... got video from this last waterfowl season... on my old Toshiba satellite which was running windows 7 home ed, i was able to take that video (.MOD) format and put it straight onto my computer into a folder, and i would have a thumbnail of maybe the beginning of that video... That computer's Hard drive crashed... so i bought a smaller Toshiba like T135 or something without a disc drive, which also has windows 7 home, and I am able to get the thumbnails on that coomputer also... however i bought this Dell Optiplex GX280 which has Windows XP on it...

Hello, I don't know if I should post this problem on Firefox forum (because I use FF as my main browser) or adobe forum but I'd like to post it here first to get some suggestions.

Basically starting from few days ago, thumbnails won't show for some videos on Japanese video steaming site called Nico Nico Douga. Here are some of the examples on Firefox (highlighted in red rectangles):
http://i.imgur.com/DH7lbOp.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/CTwKEXT.jpg
Also, it won't show on IE as well as you can see from the screenshots below:
http://i.imgur.com/SuFDpmj.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/990wrGj.jpg

However, the problem is not permanent as when I refresh the page it shows the thumbnails. Though when I refresh the page again other videos will not show the thumbnails and so on. So, it's very random and it only happens to few random videos as there are no specific pattern for certain videos.

I know it might be hard to pinpoint the cause of this problem as it's not a well known site like youtube however I suspect the way it works (i.e video thumbnails, using same flash player etc) is similar to each other.

A:Video thumbnails not showing (NicoNicoDouga: Japanese site)

It displays fine on my FF, so if it is indeed a FF problem, it may come down to one of your addons. Try running FF ins it's safe mode and see if it displays correctly.

I have 2TB hard drive with partitions, one have windows installed on and the other is BitLocker encrypted for data storage. I dont know what happend to my pc while I was at work but my pc was restarted when I got home and now my computer only shows one diskdrive (C, where windows is installed). BitLocked encrypted drive D does not show. It does show when I open disk management but it has no drive letter. See screenshot. What are my options? Please dont tell me that my 1765GB of encrypted data is lost :S

A:BitLocker Encrypted drive not showing anymore

My first bet would be to make a Ubuntu Live cd (Or even better a forensics Helix boot cd but thats probably over the top!), boot into that and see if you are able to mount the partition.. If you can then I would backup the data somewhere if possible... I think im right in saying that you can still decrypt the encrypted data if you copy it elsewhere but I haven't had much experience of bitlocker, only truecrypt.

My personal opinion is not to do anything within Windows as if it doesn't see the data or partition it may start harming your data.... Good to know my 4 years of Forensic Computing isnt going to waste... I think the above is a good start.

Hopefully others out there will have some more / easier suggestions

Hey, wondering if someone can help

I've seen people saying about the Disk Management and changing the name or path.... so when I open up that window, the disk is not named, when I right click on it, everything is greyed out apart from Help and Delete Volume options.

I've tried uninstalling the drive under the Device Manager and re-installing it again. but that doesn't work either.

I have tried this on my 2 laptops, PB and HP, and it is exactly the same on both. Both run windows 7 64-bit.

Recently I downloaded a file converter which, after installation, associated all my video files with itself. Previous to downloading this programme my .avi, .mkv files etc were all displayed simply as an icon, yet now they are all displayed as a thumbnail picture. The only solution I have found for reverting my video files back to being displayed simply as an icon is via Folder Options, 'Always show icons, never thumbnails'. However, selecting this option also disables the thumbnail preview for my .jpeg and other image files. Is there any way to disable my video files being displayed with a thumbnail whilst keeping the thumbnail preview for images? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I recently upgraded windows 7 to x64, and now my slave drive is no longer showing up in My Computer. It shows up in the bios, and in Disk manager.

I have tried assigning it a drive letter, but my only option is "help." I have tried uninstalling the driver for it, then restarting, and reinstalling the driver, but it seems like it auto-installs the driver on startup because when i go back into properties, it says its already installed.

I know I can format it to get it to work again, but I have over 300gb worth of stuff on there I don't want to lose.

drive is a Western Digital 640gb Caviar Blue

I have just built a new computer, using Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, however, I've noticed when I open Windows explorer, 3 out of 4 times it will continuously search for drives when opening up explorer and not show any drives that are installed. I've tried reformatting, using different hard drives, but the problem persists no matter what I do. I've reinstalled Windows 7 with only a single drive plugged in, tried different SATA ports, but this problem keeps coming back. The only thing I can think of is that the Windows 7 install disk is corrupted and not installing properly.

I've also noticed that once it starts searching like this, the icons wont display in any folder, although the file names will. Likewise, when trying to sort files by date, type, etc, they will not sort.

When this happens, I can easily type in C:\ to get to the drive without problem to access the drive but above problems with icons not showing, sorting, etc still is a problem.

Has anyone had this problem? Know of a way to fix this? I'm not looking forward to having to reformat again as I don't have the time to sit through and reinstall everything again after.

Hi

I have a Sony Vaio Laptop with Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit Model VPCEC1M1E. The problems that I am having are: The ATI Display driver stops responding and the screen goes blank, Also the optical drive is no longer showing within windows, and it will no longer open. I have tried lots of different ATI display drivers for the laptop however none of these have worked I have also tried clean installs but this did not make any difference. I have had a look through Event viewer and one error that seems to be a cause for concern is:

Event ID 13

: The embedded controller (EC) did not respond within the specified timeout period. This may indicate that there is an error in the EC hardware or firmware or that the BIOS is accessing the EC incorrectly. You should check with your computer manufacturer for an upgraded BIOS. In some situations, this error may cause the computer to function incorrectly.


I would be grateful for any help people can offer on the above issues.

A:Optical Drive No Longer Showing Up And Drivers Crashing

"You should check with your computer manufacturer for an upgraded BIOS"

I think your first port of call as a matter of urgency should be to contact Sony. If a BIOS update is needed, they should provide it with help on downloading it, and then flashing the BIOS.

You might also want to check with ATI's support website to see if they can give you any insight as to why this particular problem is happening.

Hi All, would love some help with this - in theory - easy problem. It's just that I've tried all the solutions that my Google-Fu skills have turned up, and nothing seems to be working for me.
 
The issue is this: Essentially when I open a folder with photos in it, I only see jpg icons. I do not see the thumbnails of the photos.
 
Some weird things that are happening: When I change the view from large icons to medium icons, nothing special happens besides the icon images getting smaller. But when I change BACK from medium to large, I briefly see the correct thumbnails, and as I watch the icon image literally loads over the thumbnails one by one. Essentially I have to sit there and cry as I watch all my thumbnails disappear and turn into useless icons. If I try this a second time in the same folder, nothing special happens anymore. I simply see the icon image.
 
I've made sure that clicking "organize->folder and search options->view (tab)->Always show icons, never thumbnails" is UNCHECKED.
 
I've made sure that clicking "start->control panel->system->advanced system settings->settings (under performance)->Show thumbnails instead of icons is CHECKED

This means file management is virtually impossible.

Please help. I start back to university the day after tomorrow and will then have vastly less time to devote to figuring this out, in addition to being unable to use it for schoolwork.

My PC was acting extremely unstable with multiple BSODs for no apparent reason, despite having up-to-date drivers and a clean scan for viruses. WhoCrashed was pointing at outdated or faulty drivers or else some sort of memory problem. I decided that since all of my important files were also on my laptop, and I therefore would lose little, I would simply reformat. I had done this before with my previous computer, which was pre-built. This one is custom-built. I was intending to do it myself, but some overly bored friends who had better knowledge of hardware than I did insisted on doing it, so I let them.

I tell you this so that you have a bit of background when I explain my problem. Since reformatting, the only video card the PC is recognizing is something called "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter". This is obviously not what I have installed. What should I do to allow the PC to recognize the video card?

The specifications of my current computer that are provided are the specifications of the computer that is having problems, from before the reformat.

Again this is a pain...I changed to Vista Ultimate 64bits a week ago, and again the damn thumbnail problem on windows explorer...

I managed to solve this on 32bits Vista and i have a post here but the same solutions doesnt' work on 64bits

What i did to solve on 32bits Vista is

1) install fresh vista
2) open the avi file with crystal player
3) crystal player told me "do you want to load the codec for this files?"
4) so that was all, he downloaded some avi basic pack and everything worked fine

Same thing i tried on vista 64 but no luck

2) i tried the registry fixes
3) i installed klite codeck pack

I have checked in the only two places I was aware of that would cause this:

Folder Options - View ....however, there is no option there to check show Thumbnails. I believe this option should be there at the top, but it isnt.

I also went to Properties of My Computer, Advanced, Performance. It is checked there to show Thumbnails.

But for whatever reason, I only see icons when I should see thumbnails. And yes, I have changed the view to Medium, large, extra large.

A:Explorer showing Icons instead of thumbnails....

Hello Dave,

You might double check through each option in the tutorial below to see if it may help. It's for Windows 7, but it's the same in Windows 8 except "Windows Explorer" is "File Explorer" in OPITION FOUR instead.

Hope this helps,

I'm running Windows 2000, and I want to be able to see JPEG images when I select "Thumbnails" under the View menu. Currently, the only images that display are Windows bit map images (BMP). I know it's possible to see JPEG windows as thumbnails under Windows 2000 because I used to have a different computer that ran 2000 and did display JPEGs. However, I got a new computer that doesn't. I'm assuming there is a way to tell Windows 2000 to display JPEG images in thumbnails, but I can't find any reference to thumbnail views in Windows help or on the Microsoft website.

Any suggestions, please?

Windows XP

I read somewhere that all you have to do to see thumbnails on the desktop is to right click on a clear area of the desktop -> View -> Thumbnails

But I don't have View when I right click on my desktop not even in grayed out, so how do I enable thumbnails on my desktop?

I do have thumbnails everywhere else and when I go to the desktop with Explore I get thumbnails there but not on my actual desktop. I set my folder options to custom view for all folders.

Thanks for helping out,
Muezan

Some of the thumbnails aren't showing up windows explorer even though they are the same file type. There will be 12 episodes of a show in .AVI or .MKV, and only 9 will have thumbnails, the other 3 don't. I have the Haali Media Splitter on to show thumbnails and I installed the Windows Service Pack to to it too (not sure which one is actually working, if I had to guess I'd say it's Haali).

To enable the thumbnails on Haali Media Splitter I click it, the went: options → explorer integration → show thumbnails (yes) → thumbnails offset (10000)

Not sure what is wrong...can anyone help?

And this is a problem with pretty much all the file types, some thumbnails showing and some not when they're in the same folder and I got them from the same source (all the files in a folder are either AVI or MKV, but the problem happens with both)

I've just purchased a computer and have just put all of my files onto said computer using Windows 7. After doing so I have noticed that some of the images don't appear to have a thumbnail and are just a black image and when I go to click on the majority
of pictures I am met with the same black image. I can now no longer see my pictures which is really frustrating seeing as I have over 16,000 of them and really need a solution to this if anyone is available to help? Many Thanks

A:Images and thumbnails showing up as a being black

Hi,
According to your description, it is seems like these pictures thumbnail weren't copied from original computer.
You can enable new system thumbnail for test:
Open Folder Options, then check Display file icon on thumbnails.

Hallo guys!

First of all i must say that my english it's not my native language, so sory for any mistakes.

Now to my problem, i have a Toshiba Qosmio Q55-Q802 with vista premium 64b and from the first day i cannot see Thumbnails in explorer. The problem is only with the movies or series that they are in AVI format, when for example a movie is in WMV format or MPG format then i have thumbnails(the capture picture from the film), and also i have thumbnails for my photos or pictures.So the problem is only with files that they are in AVI format. I thing that the problem is the 64b O.S because with my old laptop i had vista ultimate and i had thumbnails without any problems

Until now i clean the cache but nothing, one frind of my he tried something with my registry but still nothing and i also i went to folder options - view - and i have unchecked Alway shows icon , never thumbnails but still nothing.I dont remember something else that i did for the moment.

As i said i have this problem from the firs day that i got my laptop and i have my new laptop for 5-6 month so any help it will be highly appreciated.

Just within the past week or so, when viewing pics in windows explorer, only some of the thumbnails will show the image they are representing. Some won't. I tried rebuilding the library and doing Disk Cleanup to delete them so they'd rebuild; I've checked/unchecked the "show icons not thumbs" to see if that would kick it into showing it. Nothing has helped.
Also, maybe related, when opening up any Windows explorer window, the green bar at the top is very slow to load all the way to the right, sometimes never getting to the other side.

I had Windows Vista since last year and everything was fine. Yesterday, my icons/thumbnails on the internet disappeared and show a box with symbols. I can tell what the box says when I scroll over but how do I get the icons back. I restored the firewall to its default setting and the icons came back but now they're gone again. Please help.

When I open Windows Explorer I and go to my Picture File, the Thumbnails don't always show correctly. I can open Windows Explore and see no Thumbnails displayed but if I open another copy, it's better but not all come up. I have multiple folders, some display no thumbnails (a blank white sheet), others show a few and others show more. I also get a green bar at the top that never finishes. Sometimes, I open Explorer, and if I try to expand the Folder Tree on the left panel it won't expand, The Files are on an External Flash Drive. I've tried many troubleshooting searches for the problem so yes, I have the Folder Option, "View" set to "Display thumbnails." This is a recent problem. One last thing, the computer seems as it's freezing and not updating the thumbnails, but currently the CPU usage is only 4% under Task Manager.

A:Windows Explorer not showing Thumbnails

Did you make any changes to your Windows Operating System recently? Sounds like the aftermath of a "tune up" that went wrong.
 
That being said, the data that has no thumbnails.... can you open them and view the data, I'm curious to know if it's corrupted.
