I have got my photos / music and video on a WD 1tb networked drive. all hunky dory, however I have noticed that photos take ages to display on either my ps3 or ipad when I 'look' for them through the media server software /apps on either device...music or video files start playing straight away and they don't ever buffer or get stuck...even HD video...so why do photos not display in a reasonable timeframe? sometimes the ps3 gives me a media server error message, and the ipad just hangs for ages sometimes taking minutes to load up one 4mb photo...that can't be right surely.! I can't work it out...!
I have got a Virgin media 'n' router that the NAS is hooked up to, and my line speed is 20mbps...and everything works great other than the photos...I'm baffled...anyone know what the problem might be..?
btw, I'm not a techie kind of bod, so please keep it simple if you can..! cheers
