    Hello:

    I consider myself a very knowledgeable computer/software user but this has me stumped! Google nor Microsoft's site has not helped.

    I have a real problem that I cannot fix and have tried everything I can think of but there must be something I am missing.

    I cannot get a thumbnail image of .mpg files. The files show a square image with the top right corner folded down and a film strip in the middle with mpeg on a white back ground. I want all the files in a folder to show themselves as real images.
    The clips/files with .wmv files work great.

    If I select the files from this computer on another wireless shared computer I can see the real images as .mpg's.

    They are short video clips.

    Would you please tell me what to do or send me to some place that can solve this problem.

    Regards,

    Billy Poulos
