Re: WD Photos does Not display all Folders

Hi there,

I have obverved a similar behaviour. I have tried everything a read in this thread but I'm still not able to see all folders.

- All folders are beneath public/Shared Pictures. 11 in total but only 3 appear in no particular order (2nd, 3rd and 9th)
  Displayering 517 pictures. There are 16 319 in total available (shown in mybooklive/UI / setup / twonky media.)

- Cache is configured to 5 GB  (which hasn't changed anything. Allways only 3 folders appearing)

- Cache was cleaned

- Indexing was restarted on Server side

 

client:

Acer Iconia A500  running Android 3.0

WD Photos 1.3.0

 

Server:

WD My Book Live 3TB

Version:MyBookLive 02.01.06-026 : Core F/W

Twonky Media 5.1.9

 

What else can I try ?

 

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Cheers,

Ingo

Re: WD Photos does Not display all Folders

I have a very similar story. I have cleared the cache, reinstalled wd photos (on my iPad). Still only a minor number of my photos show up. Having spent two days and read nearly ever post here I'm nearing explosion point. Please please can someone find a solution.

Re: WD Photos does Not display all Folders

I have almost 100gb on my wdtv live hub and WD photos only sees 3 photos. What is up with this?

Re: WD Photos does Not display all Folders

I noticed the same problem...which I believe may be caused by insufficient memory allocated to caching photo thumbnails on my android phone (bionic).  I was able to increase the number of directories and photos displayed, by increasing the cache size in the WD Photos app settings (now maxed at 5 GG) and clearing the cache, so that it rebuilds again.  It's still unclear how many directories and photos, will eventually process  with the cache set this large.  The WD 2go App doesn't have this problem since it doesn't display photo thumbnails.  Kind of a dilemma, WD Photos is intuitive, but limited by the thumbnail cache issue...and WD 2go app isn't intuitive since all you see is directory & file names and dates.  Which means it's time to cull through thousands of photos, organizing them, and descriptively title them...Mañana right!  Given the thumbnail caching memory requirements it would be awesome if WD provided a way to organize files on the My Book Live Network drive to point WD Photos to a subset or sub directory tree of the potentially massive Shared Photos directory!  Re-organizing seems further complicated by the WD Photos reticence in recognizing when photos have been reorganzied or deleted, even after clearing the cache.  WD Photos seems to be a work in progress...promising but not quite there yet!

Re: WD Photos does Not display all Folders

I have the same issue with WD Photos on My Book Live 2TB on iphone4/ipad - only one out of the six folders in my public/shared pictures folder is displayed, and even then just 495 out of the over 1000 pictures are listed. It does not appear that the number of pictures will increase - transcoding time or not - stuck at 495 photos for days. Cleared cache, increased cache to 5gb, deleted drive etc same result.

 

Is there a physical limit to number of pictures in first folder seen?

Re: WD Photos does Not display all Folders

... after raising my cache to 5gb the number of displayed pictures has now crept up from 493 to 511 after 5 hrs! Seems it will be ages before all 5pictures are displayed, if ever.

 

I think the problem wd was aiming to solve by these thumbnails is replaced by a more frustrating one of not seeing all the pictures you want to see. my suggestion: marry the two; display all folders and pictures initially using dummy icons, gradually update the thumbnails as is being done now, but give priority to any pictures on demand.

Re: WD Photos does Not display all Folders

I have had the same issue for weeks. I am running the latest version of WDphotos and from my IPAD1 running OS5 I can see some of my folders but not all. Nothing has changed for weeks. I am not convinced that clearing the cache on the ipad actually does anything as when I am offline I see the same photos as when I am connect the MBL......a real shame as the app and NAS box would be awesome if this worked. I have a case open with WD support but its vry slow going....

 

cheers

Re: WD Photos does Not display all Folders

Hi, have you had any response from WD? I am having the same problem but also have photos doubled and reorganising or adding files does not update on my iPad. Not impressed with this.
