Maybe you should try contacting WD’s Technical Support about this. You can do so either by phone or email.

Welcome to the forums.

How are you connecting to your network – media server or net shares?

With Net Shares you *should* see your thumbnails.  Are they external thumbs (separate JPG files) or are they embedded?  And if embedded, what file format?  (AFAIK only MP4 files support embedded thumbs with the Live).
