    Hi :)

    Was MP not still in the process of generating the thumbs for the specific folder?

    Can you still reproduce this?

    No, even waiting for hours won't change that

    But it only happens on a share on a w2k3 Server. On a share in another XP Box it works fine.

    Users are on both Server and XP Admins with full rights on share.

    Definitly it seems to be a problem with networked drives.. even the user has full access rights.. MP is not able to generate thumbnails...

    when I plug in a memory stick mp generates within seconds the thumbnails...

    on the share.. nothing... that is a little bit annoying as I want to have all collections (music/video/pictures) on the server..

    Any Ideas?

    Regards Robertino

    I have the same issue - network drive on a Win 7 x64 server, full rights read/write rights given! The database gets created, MP also takes some time to create all the thumbs, nevertheless the thumbs\pictures directory stays empty!

    I'm currently at the wrong computer, but if any logs are needed I could post them later!
