Windows 7: How to enable thumbnails on portable devices?

How to enable thumbnails on portable devices?

I have Windows 7 Pro official release. When viewing folders on any drive under Computer: "Hard Disk Drives" the thumbnails show for all images. This is good. When I open up anything under Computer: "Portable Devices", such as my cell phone, it shows no thumbnails, only icons. This is bad. I need to be able to manage the photos on my cellphone. I already checked the folder settings and "display only icons" is NOT checked. So how can I enable thumbnails on my phone? Is there a setting in Windows 7, or perhaps a setting on the cell phone to allow Windows 7 to write thumbnails to the folder? It's the Storage Card on the phone, so it really shouldn't be write protected in any way.
