I dont think you'll find one.  I've looked before and not found anything.  You're going to have to rely on APIs I think.

If you do it, try making it into a component yourself and release it for everyone else to use.  What goes around, comes around, eh? :)

Hi,

There is a C# library (under LGPL)  forreading thumb.db at http://www.petedavis.net/MySite/DynPageView.aspx?pageid=31 (with source code).

From the page:

There is only one class you need to use: ThumbDB.
The ThumbDB constructor takes a string with the full path and filename of the thumbs.db file you want to read.
public string[] GetThumbFiles()
public byte[] GetThumbData(string filename)
public Image GetThumbnailImage(string filename)

...

Maybe someone here can help you translate the whole from C# to delphi ...and maybe as said above release it for everyone else to use.

See also infos on thumbs.db file internals at http://vinetto.sourceforge.net/docs.html
