My MP3 & Video Icons Are Gone! Just Blank Now...

so yeah i don't really know what the deal is here, but for some reason my MP3's don't show a little picture , preview icon anymore (just blank, basic icon), same with all my videos too.. WMV's, MP4's etc. just regular default thumbnail.

there's gotta be a setting in Windows where you can fix that, right? i just haven't found it!

Also, if not installed/set correctly some codec packs could cause similar issues
