Windows 7: Thumbnails and optical drive problem

Thumbnails and optical drive problem

I know how to disable thumbnails system wide and this is not what I want to do.

The problem my system is having is when I place a disc such as an SVCD in the drive and want to copy one of the files. When I go into the folder with the videos, Windows tries to make thumbnails of all the files or at least it tries to gather information on them. The problem is that since it's an optical disc, there is only one laser, so there is a very long explorer.exe freeze while it tries to do so. I guess it is reading a little of each file at a time and trying for all of them at once.

Is there a tweak or a setting I can change without affecting videos stored on the HDDs? Thanks if ya know.
