Windows 7: Music and video files in explorer don't show art or preview

Music and video files in explorer don't show art or preview

Hey,

I just noticed today that my video and music files in explorer no longer show the album art or the video instead of the standard Icon when viewing large icons in folders. I think it is because I recently installed and uninstalled winamp. (thats the only thing I can think of) I cant do system restore because I had it disabled. I've tried reseting the search index, reseting folder options, going under performance and checking the settings there, nothing has changed. I really dont want to have to wipe and reinstall...



Here is a picture if you dont get what Im saying, as you can see in the folders it still displays the album art of the files but the actual mp3 files dont show it. The album art works fine in WMP.

do you mean the mp3 files had the albumart embedded in the files, it may be you have to embed it manually using a third party software, i use mp3tag.
also try this in an open window go to organize ,top left then select folder and search options ,then choose the view tab and make sure always show icons ,never thumb nails is unchecked its the first in the list
