    Unhappy Picture Icon/Thumbnail not showing picture on external drive

    I purchased an external hard drive (My Book Live 2TB) and am not able to "see" my pictures when looking through windows explorer. All I see is a generic icon. When I use my Windows XP desktop to view the same files on the drive I am able to "see" the pictures when looking at the thumbnails. I have tried changing the view settings for the folder in Windows 8 as well as changing the default folder view. Any suggestions?

    Have you discovered any simple procedure to view all photo that are saved on external drive. There appears to be NO slideshow or any means of renaming or deleting or doing anything. You can only view one photo at a time. This Win 8 is crap!

    EASY!

    Go to the right hand sand and click the Settings button, Go to PC info, Click Advanced system settings on the left, Go to advanced tab, Click settings inside the performance box, Adjust computer to best appearance or go custom and enable "show thumb nails instead of icons".
