Windows 7: Folder thumbnails issues with music collection

Cool many thanks


The image you uploaded works like a charm!! but I can't make the rest of my albumarts to work!
For example with another Bryan Adams album art I get the tiny image despite the PNG file uploaded to convertICO is enough big! or it needs to be bigger

Here is a image of my issue the left image is the PNG file opened with Irfanview!



-------------------------
EDIT: Yes seems that it needs bigger images as 400x400 more or less or ConvertICO will output a small 64x64 ICO file, I am batch processing to resize all albumarts to 400x400 then uploading to convertICO and works fine as convertICO ICO files are now 256x256.
I will post when finished to report success or not

(but not with subfolders)

OK, I though at first you found them on Internet good job

I have a last question about this, sorry.

I want to move all the new music collection to my netbook (it has currently the same old higgledy-piggledy shown in the OP, but I've deleted it), I tried with a random folder (all folders have the ICO file inside), but the icon in the netbook's Explorer is the default again. Is there a way to make the flat icons appear in the laptop as well without configure them again? (which is very tedious) A quick search said this has to do with relative paths or something but I can't find how!


For example:
Here is the folder and its contents I've copied from my desktop:


And here is the result in the laptop


Many thanks (again)

If there is I'm not aware, I reckon you will have to re do them as you have done on the desktop,at least you already have the icons.

once your done it will be easy to stay on top of them as you will only need to do them as you add them, just a tip, if you change the name of a customized folder, the icon will revert to the default folder, dont panic just re do the customization.

Video and Music thumbnails not showing.....
Ive read this is a windows 7 problem but all my mp4's have the usual default image instead of what they used to have when I first downloaded them. Did the thumbnail location change? I did, at one point, install a new media player which became my default for some reason, I corrected that problem...
