    Hi
    Im running LR 4,ReadyNAS 2, Elements 11 and PS5
    My problem is when I open Bridge or LR4, I cannot get any thumbnails at all.
    Can any one shed any light as to why not.
    Regards
    Keith

    Lightroom will not open a catalogue stored on a NAS but will happily handle images stored on the NAS as long as the catalogue is on a local drive.

    I am using a ReadyNAS+ 2 and have most of my old images stored on it, but the catalogue on my local drive. It works perfectly.

    Your problems may be down to access permissions on the NAS folder. Can you browse the folders using Windows Explorer? Can you open one of the files in something like IranView.

    If this is not the problem have you told Lightroom where to find the images since you moved them onto the NAS? If your folder structure is still the same it should just be a matter of pointing LR at the top level.

    Hope some of this helps.

    By the way, if it is of interest, I use Allway Sync to backup my local drive to the NAS. I have auto-sync set so it automatically copies any new or changed files within a few minutes.

    Ian
