    This is a repost, but with the title/subject line corrected.

    I have two WD TV Live Plus devices, and my media is stored on a 1GB network drive. My network is 1Gbit. Both media players exhibit the same problem.

    When I attempt to view photos (typically 3 to 5Mb in size), it takes about two minutes for the image to be displayed, and two minutes to show the next photo, and about the same to respond to the exit/return button on the remote.

    Is anyone else having this problem? Is it working fine for you?

    FYI: I updated to the latest firmware yesterday; the problem existed with the previous firmware version, but I recall it being fine with much earlier versions. Also, I get the same problem when viewing photos that are stored on my PC. There are no problems viewing video files of several GB in size.

    Thanks.

    you could try playing with jumbo frames and flow control on the network card where the pics are being hosted.
    I have a 100MB network and I don't get that at all, yet I can play any file I try across the network, 1080p is no problem
    over 34GB so a 3 to 5 MB pic should be no problem at all

    The solution you suggested didn't work - but thanks anyway.

    I discovered that the problem was caused by something in the image metadata. I couldn't pinpoint exactly which part of the data was the problem, but if I forced a rewrite of the Exif and IPTC data, then the images loaded perfectly.

    I suspect that for a period of about a year (mid 2009 to mid 2010) an application I was using had corrupted part of the data.
