    I would like to back up my roms with a cover art picture in the folder. I would then like to view this as a film strip so it is easy for my kids to see what game they would like. Problem is I cant seem to get the dvd to view as a film strip any suggestions?

    There is no way for me to answer this post seriously

    EDIT: copypasta from a more helpful source

    Change view to thumbnails
    Tools > Folder Options > View tab > Apply to All Folders

    I think if you choose 'View > Thumbnail', folders display the picture.

    I also do Filmstrip on my collection.

    Try this one:

    If you are going to put all the games in a DVD, before burning the files to the DVD organize your pictures and folders first.
    Place everything (pictures and roms) in one folder.
    Then right-click that folder. Click "Properties". You'll see tabs there, choose "Customize".
    You'll see "Use this folder type as a template:" --> choose Pictures or Photo Album
    Click "OK".

    Then open your folder and click "View" --> choose Filmstrip or Thumbnails whichever suits you.

    Hope this works for you! [​IMG]
