Changing a Folders Thumbnail Picture

  1. Oct 30, 2008 #1
    I am running Windows Vista and have an external harddrive connected via USB. I store all my music on it and want to change the thumbnail pictures to the album covers that are already in the folders but when I right click, customize and apply new thumbnail, nothing happens. Why can't I change my folder thumbnail?

    Did you change the folder type to "Music Icons"?

    the folder types are already music folders
    they are just new folders that i put albums of music in that i got via torrents (shhh) so basically ur suppose to be able to right click and change the folder cover picture as long ast the folder itself contains the picture that you want to apply. After hitting apply, nothing happens, perhaps it has to do with the fact that its on an external hard drive? Thanks for your response tho. i appreciate that at least 1 person could comment after 44 views. :-p
