1) I believe that if you have the proper codec for the video file there will be a thumbnail. If not just try playing it once. That always work for me. Oo if you want to play wmv file with quictime you'll need flip4mac. Here's the link.
Windows Media® Components for QuickTime

2) Here's an application that I found that will hide your files or folders. Plus its free. Its calleed Hide Folders.
Hide Folders for Mac - Freeware program to protect documents and folders on Mac OS X
thanks for the response. the problem with Hide folders is, well, it's called "Hide folders." it's begging to draw curious eyes. if you have kids, you know that if you put a "don't look here" sign on something, the kid will look. i miss the way i could look at the the guts of a pc and move folders around. i know it's early, but i feel like mac doesn't want me to customize it.
QUOTE Thanks
