I'd like to see the picture inside my MP3 files as icon, as the FLACs files.
All MP3 files have pictures i've embbeded with MP3TagIt.
Can somebody help me?

I still recommend looking for solutions on the level of the OS, rather than on the continued assumption that foobar2000 is somehow responsible for this. It could just as likely be that something in Windows is amiss, or even that your FLAC-handling extension is interfering with other things.

Certainly your repeated resetting of foobar2000ís associations and integration is not likely ever to have been responsible. The most that will do will be to change the icon that is displayed when no Windows-compatible thumbnail is present: it shouldnít have any effect upon the ability of Windows to display said image if it does exist.

Now that we have established that things in foobar2000 are configured as they should be, to me it seems more logical to take a break from that and to look for possible reasons elsewhere, rather than continuing to get nowhere based on an assumption that foobar2000 is responsible. Admittedly, Iím no expert on how Windows handles all of this, so I canít rule anything out, but I canít think of a way that fb2k could be the culprit.

Fellows and db1989, I guesse our coleague db1989 is right because the exact same MP3 files, copied to another PC in last weekeend, with the exact same Foobar2000 instalation and the exact same Win7 installed, showed the correct front page icon. The diference between the two computers is: in the other one i've never deep cleaned the register with all options on in Ccleaner (using extensions, too) and - as it was not enough - with Auslogics Registry Cleaner... And remembering with my son the issue I've bring starts to occour after these cleaners installed. And I've installed these two cleaners after making some experience to complete uninstall the Windows Media Player...

Thanks a lot for all and I guess I'll have to coexist with this issue until a new re-install of OS, work I do annually, in November, birthday of my daughter. Thanks again and apologize for anything wrong, as my a horrible English as with doubts out of the Foobar2000 scope. Some shame on me to cause some disturb...

Aha, now weíre getting somewhere! tongue.gif Depending on how deep your attempts at removing WMP went, you might have collaterally taken out something that is involved in the display of thumbnails in Explorer. Weíve seen how MS like to Ďpromoteí (effectively enforce) their own applications by intertwining them quite deeply indeed with Windows itself; this has historically been considered in the context of IE, but WMP has been gaining notoriety in recent years for the same reason.

Perhaps. I think a solution would be more likely to come from an expert on Windows rather than on foobar2000, anyway. But perhaps we have some people here who qualify as such! If not, it might be something that we canít help about if all we could do is guess. But you never know!

No apology necessary for the thread, as it was worth asking! And your English is not problematic, certainly better than some Iíve seen. wink.gif
