lost thumbnail previews RRS feed

  • Question

  • op-win-vista prem.

    i was working in windows movie maker, trying to put mpeg file into the audio section -to record sound/music and kept getting error/need to restart movie maker,  i check problem reporter, and it said to update my nero driver -so i used the nero updater and downloaded and installed it, -still dident work, but i then lost all my mpg, mpeg, wmv thumbnails, i check online for this turns out nero has a problem with old drivers, the ones i downloaded are 7.9 and the ones on my cd are 7.13!!

    i uninstalled nero and reinstalled with the cd (7.13) i noticed a vast diffrence in windows movie maker stabal as hell now a few more video filter where added from the cd and i can now record audio off of mpegs ect- my only problem is i am still not getting any thumbnail previews on any video files, a few web sites have said to reinstall windows or go into registry and edit some files, i have only had this laptop for 8 days, i was wondering if thier was a fix or other , way to sort this problem,

    any help would be apreciated Smile

    Nero 7, Vista, and where did the thumbnails go - registry fix

    Bad bad nero. Changes the registry from these defaults. So save this as a reg file or carefully edit the registry (need admin rights):

  • I am facing a similar problem on my Windows XP Home Edition SP3.

    The thumbails for all types of pictures are generating, but not for any videos including .wmv .avi .mpg. I don't know since when this is happening, I observed this recently.

    I was using Windows Media Player 11, KMPlayer v2.9.4, K-Lite Mega Codec Pack v5, Format Factory v2, Nero Vision (Nero 8). I had uninstalled these softwares and then reinstalled them one by one as I was testing thumbnails between every installation, but even though nothing worked out.

    I tried to correct it by going to Windows Explorer's Folder Options and the restoring the defaults and applying it to all folders. I cleaned my tracks, junk files, registry issues using Ccleaner & Wise Registry Cleaner. But nothing really worked out.

    Please Help !!!
