Windows 7: Movie Maker Thumbnail Wrong

Movie Maker Thumbnail Wrong

I am creating some scenes to import to DVD Maker from Live Movie Maker.

Each scene starts with a 'title' frame so it would be easy to identify on a dvd menu. I have done four 'scenes' and they saved correctly as .wmv files with the title frame showing as the thumbnail for the file. The fifth scene did not use the title frame but the first photo instead (which won't work for my dvd menu). As it is saved as a .wmv file, I can't seem to open it to edit. Is that right?

Why would Live Movie Maker use the first photo rather than the first frame? Did I press a key that set that up? Did I not have the cursor before the first frame when I saved it?

Is there any way I can open and edit my existing .wmv file or am I going to have to do it again; if so, I need to know for sure how to get the title frame as the thumbnail for the file so it will be my dvd menu item.

By the way, I did upload the file into dvd maker to see if it showed the title frame as it's thumbnail. Nope. Showed the first photo.
