Movies OK, photo and MP3 not working -- solved!

Postby jopemoro » Tue Jan 20, 2009 9:43 am

I'm having trouble getting the photos and MP3s to show on the PS3 menu. When I go into a folder with pictures or music the XMB just waits and I eventually get a "DLNA error 2006".

Movie folders work great since day 1. This happened on 1.02 and now on 1.03.

Any ideas what could be wrong? Anything I can do to help look into this?

Tx!

Just a question as you have not mentioned it, which heading are you selecting in the XMB when looking at your music/pics?

Hi! Thanks for the reply.

I'm using the corresponding menu category for each: music for MP3 and Photo for Pictures.

I'm happy to try any ideas... :)

Yes, sorry, I should have done it from the start, I just though it would be something obvious I was missing.

Setup:
Windows Vista, 4 cores, 4Gb memory
Wireless connection to PS3 (Linksys WAG54GS)
Music, pictures and movies are in a LAN drive, all directories shared individually (\\LAN drive\public\movies, \\LAN drive\public\music, \\LAN drive\public\pictures, etc...).
Movies play perfectly since day 1 'out of the box', no tweaks needed. I have separate directories for movies and series, and no problems at all.
uPnP enabled.

However, while movies work perfectly, transcoded and not transcoded, no luck with music and pictures.

In the meanwhile, I've searched the forum for similar issues, and someone mentioned there could be a problem if too many files were present in the top directory. I've tried removing all files into a folder in 'Pictures', and it now seems to be working. Could it be that, even if you go further down a directory, PSM is still trying to read all files in the top directory and times out? (There were possibly over 100 yet unclassified pictures in the top directory).

I'll try to drop all MP3s into folders and retry and repost in case it works so that we can let everyone know.

Yes, my shares are similar, the only difference is that I have everything on a network drive. But since movies are working, that shouldn't be the issue.

What I did is I tried removing all MP3 files from the root folder shared, and it now works, as it did for pictures.

So it looks like the DLNA 2006 error is a timeout if you have too many files in the top folder you are sharing. This should probably be documented somwhere. How can I help in doing that?

Your probably right, you see inside each of my sharing folders all my mp3 albums are in diff folders.... if ppl read this thread they will have the answer!

Hi..I have the same problem. Movies have always worked, but none of my photos or mp3s seem to be seen by the PS3. None of the files are in the root folder...all in separate folders.............Any ideas?

Make sure you're in the appropriate section of the PS3 XMB for the media you're trying to view.
I provide NO application support via PM or email, so please post your question to the forum per the Forum Rules.
