I have two folders in the “Shared Photos” directory on my mbl, Album and Pictures.
The WD Photo app only sees the Album folder and not the Pictures folder.
I think that this is initially my fault because I ‘rsynced’ the Pictures folder and
rsync initially gave funky group ownership AND read write access ONLY to
the user Jerry.
I changed the group of the Pictures directory to ‘share’ ( and also all of the
files therein), and gave everybody read execute access.
The app still does not see the Pictures directory…
Is there anyway I can make the Pictures directory visible to the WD Phota app ( iPad).
Try DISABLING the media access on that share and re-enabling it. That might force a re-index.
I deleted the WD Photo app from my iPad and re-i nstalled the rascal, now the first time
setup fails with:
Device is offline (668)
and I cannot see any of my pictures…
The iPhone version of the app still does work and now sees the other photo folder ( 6k pics).
I have rebooted the MBL but it did no good ;(
The iPad appears to be repairing itself
The initialization phase completed and both of the top level folders are
I pitched about 6k pics from the Picture folder by dumping the iTunes library…
The iPhone still thinks that all of the pictures are still there…
I will give it another day to see if it notices all of the discarded pictures…
