I followed your instructions, checked a few times to make sure all was right, but nothing happened. I am still not getting thumbnails.

Did you check using each option in the tutorial above to rule out all of them?

Is this only with your .jpg or .jpeg image files, or do you not have thumbnail previews of all image files (ex: bmp, etc...)?
