    Exactly what operating system are you running?

    If you are running Windows Vista, do the view options say "View Icons" or "View Thumbnails"?

    What file format (JPG, PNG, BMP, etc.) are the files? If you right click on one of the problem files and select "Properties", what filename extension is showing for the filename?
