Thumbnails do not show when browsing pictures
« on: November 04, 2009, 04:44:55 pm »
   

Hi,

 

When I browse to my pictures folder on my Buffalo Linkstation LS-CHLA20 from my Vista machine and select large icons for example, the thumbnails flash up for a second and then the files just return to the generic picture icon.

 

Any ideas why?

 

Thanks

I too would like an answer on this question.  I have the same issue with shared folders containing jpg pictures.  They are either the dull yellow icons or everyone of them are of the SAME photo!  It would be helpful to me and forumaccount if someone at Buffalo can give advice on this...

 

Thanks

I have a similar issue with my Pro Duo drive.

I read something in the Knowledge Base (in relationship to videos) that making folders with less content might help.

Maybe there is a size "limit"?  Kind of ridiculous to me.

I find it extremely annoying that I can't view all my thumbnails in a folder.

If you go to view at the top of the Explorer Window it dosent give you an option to view the thumbnails?

wow joshc u keep repeating the same thing in multiple threads. I have it set to view thumbnails and thats not the issue. the issue is the folders arnt actually prefetching the thumbnails and you have to go over every image with the cursor to fetch the thumbnail. a very long an annoying process considering the few gigs of images i have from different photoshoots at partys and such. once you have the cursor go over each and every image just hit f5 to refresh the folder and you should be good.

There are many users that do not have it set to that and it cause's an issue.  Depending on which browser and how you have it set up can affect the viewing of photo's, movies,...etc...

Again, look in my thread. I fixed it for me (with a little disfunction of the DTCP-IP-Function) But now all works well.
