Media Libraries problem displaying photos

I have a problem getting Media Center to display my Photos showing the individual photos contents of each folder.
I am running Win7 HP 64 bit with all updates. My MEDIA (movies, music & photos) are on a separate hdd (M). Each of the media formats has it's own folder on the M drive, Movies, Music & Photos. I have no problem with the movies or the music. However, when I choose "pictures" in Windows Media Center only the individual photos folders are shown....no photos are shown in these folders. I see the individual folders but no contents. I have set up "Libraries" on the C:\ drive; Music, Video & Photos. When I click on photos in the "Libraries" all the photos folders are show each with it's own photos. I have "Shared" these libraries as well as each folder on the Media drive M. The format of the individual photos is jpg. I have run SFC/Scannow. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Thanks for the input. I double clicked as you suggested and still no photos showing up in the "photo" folder when viewed with WMP. WMP shows, when choosing, Photos all of the Photo (main folder) sub folders. However, no individual photos are showing even though when creating the Pictures/Photos library from the WMP Media library "settings" icon. This task does seem to find/add over 5000 photos.

If you are the same person I assisted on the AVS forums,
on the Misc TAB of the Shark007 Settings Application is a button to [Rebuild WMP Library]
Using that button may solve your issue.
