Seeing prviews or thumbnails of photos on CD rom

Hi, I hope someone might be able to help me solve this problem ...

In XP on my computer I have a folder called "My Pictures". Photos and
pictures stored here seem to generate a thumnail or preview along the bottom
of the folder when you open it. This is very useful in quickly enabling me
to locate the picture I require by scrolling through the previews.

When I place a CD in my CD drive, also containing picture files, the little
previews or thumnails are not generated. This then means I have to either
start a slide show or open each picture file individually to find the one I
am looking for.

Is there some simple way of getting XP to generate the previews or
thumbnails of pics stored on CDs?

Thanks for any help anyone might be able to offer.
