    gI all

    I have a Panasonic blu ray system and a hard drive to watch films on.
    When I look at the files that are just titles, is there any way you can see the cover to see what the film is about before you watch it.
    you sometimes have a few films on the hardrive and forget what they are about rather than just playing them

    cheers

    Check your players user manual you maybe able to either:
    a-drop any covers into the same folder the movies are in & so long as names match the name of the movie exactly it may show you covers
    b-drop all the movies into separate same name folders so each movie has its own folder named after it,now drop the covers including the movies into their respective movie folders & name the cover the word as i've written it below

    folder

    when extensions are unhidden in windows it would appear like
    folder.jpg

    ok to make it more sense
    1-hdd shows up as say usb0 or whatever
    2-you have a folder of the movie 300 named as 300
    3-inside this folder you have the movie
    4-now drop the cover in but name it the word "folder" without quotes

    in windows it would appear like so
    usb0\300\folder.jpg

    In Blu-ray disc, it actually contains the information about the movie.
