    Odd problem I noticed last night.

    On my Mac Pro, I have several mp4, wav and mp3 files on my desktop. When I mouse over (unopened) icons, I get the usual "play" symbol to appear and I can preview the music file without opening it.

    HOWEVER, on my MacBook Pro, I try the exact same thing and...no preview, no "play" symbol, nothing.

    Both machines are running 10.6.2, newer machines, etc. All up to date.

    Not a big problem, but...HELP!

    Found it....

    Desktop icons for MacBooks need to be minimum 64 x 64 in order to show the preview controls.
