  1. Hi everyone

    I want to know how to disable the preview of movies on my PC - the first frame shown in the icon of each movie. right now I have a lot of movies on my PC, and because everyone of them shows the preview, my hard drive has crashed and I can't access it!!!

    I have changed the view settings to list instead of thumbnails- in that way you don't see the preview, but this is just temporarily- I want to disable it completly.

    Anybody know how?

    More details like OS

    Do you mean playing DVD movies or avi and mpg's or something else ?
    What Player are you useing ?
    Just use the players File menu to load from their location.You don't need to view them in My Computer.Make a Playlist.
    But i really don't understand what Preview means after you mention
    viewing as an thumbnails or list.Its just a choice of what you have and more of an icon of it.That won't cause a system crash.I just looked at mine that way.
    That shouldn't have anthing to post about.
    First you say you crashed,then you say you made changes.:confused:

    simple. Right click on an empty spot in the directory and select view list or something besides thumbnails.
