Windows 7: How to change the number of pixels per column for optical drive "view

So these are the backup DVD's you mentioned in your 1st post? I assume it's because the folder structure is already set on the backup. Can't you restore the data, then use the method to set all folders view? Or I am missing what you mean works for everything but the optical (dvd/sd) drive?

Yes, Guy, when I insert the backup dvd's I mentioned after doing the registry alteration and setting my folder view for all other folders, the view is the same for the content on the disc as before the change. When you say restore the data, where do you mean? I've already reloaded all the data from the backup discs to the hard drive. So the reason for the OP is a little outdated now except for the fact that I still don't have control over some small thing.

Sorry, let me get this straight. You have reloaded all the data, then made the changes we have above to make all the views the same? It does not change the views on the data you reloaded only?

I am more then confused now. You are viewing the content on the disc? May I ask why? That content is not loaded, and will always have the same view as when you made the disc. I thought the discs were to restore the data?

I use DVDr's to backup the data on my hard drives. These discs last longer than the hard drives. So from time to time I have to use them to reload data. When I have to do this, I'd like (if possible) to have the details view of the disc in the optical drive configured the way I like.

Ahh, I see, that is entirely different. The disc view is not loaded into windows, or the registry, so the view will always be the same as when you created the disc. I can think of no way to change that, sorry

Thanks for trying and sorry I wasn't more clear about what I was trying to do. I guess what I need to do is find out how to get Nero to burn the discs the way I want for the next time I need to use them.

If you make the changes in windows, then when you make their backups, they should have the changes on the disc. Make a backup now, if the view settings are working, and you should see the views on the disc If not, then the software only copies data, and not layout

That must be the case because I've tried burning a new disc since making the changes and the result is the same.

Bummer, so viewing the discs will always have default view. It's possible even if folders are set to thumbnails, that when copied to disc, they will display details. When you do restore them to your PC, they should display the way you have set them again at least. I make my backups as windows images, to a 2nd internal HDD, so had never backed up to discs. A Guy

Since it appears that my problem is with a third party app (Nero) and not Windows I guess we can call it a day for this one. I can try a different route with Nero and report back if that's OK. For anyone else wanting to know, that is.
