Iphoto library on external hard drive now does not show all the photos when i access it from macbook

i backed up iphoto library to an external hard drive.  Deleted photo library on the macbook.  After transferring some new photos to macbook from a camera, when i access the iphoto library on external hard drive only the new photos show up.  Originals are still in files, but don't appear when opening iphoto library on external hard drive.

Make a temporary, backup copy of your library if you don't already have one (Control-click on the library and select Duplicate from the contextual menu) and  apply the two fixes below in order as needed:
Fix #1
Launch iPhoto with the Command+Option keys held down and rebuild the library.
Select the options identified in the screenshot. 
Fix #2
Using iPhoto Library Manager  to Rebuild Your iPhoto Library
Download iPhoto Library Manager and launch.
Click on the Add Library button, navigate to your Home/Pictures folder and select your iPhoto Library folder.
Now that the library is listed in the left hand pane of iPLM, click on your library and go to the File ➙ Rebuild Library menu option
In the next  window name the new library and select the location you want it to be placed.
Click on the Create button.
Note: This creates a new library based on the LIbraryData.xml file in the library and will recover Events, Albums, keywords, titles and comments but not books, calendars or slideshows. The original library will be left untouched for further attempts at fixing the problem or in case the rebuilt library is not satisfactory.

    Make sure the EHD is formatted OS X Extended (journaled) and run Disk Utilty on the EHD and repair the disk.  If that fails to help I'd try the following:

  • How do i repair or recover data from a corrupt USB external hard drive that does not show up on my Mac desktop or disk utility

    How do i repair or recover data from a corrupt USB external hard drive that does not show up on my Mac desktop or disk utility?
    Last night i was using my external hard drive, for some reason the folder just closed and i couldn't find it on my desktop.
    After googling solutions, i found it in the disk utilities, i clicked on the 'repair' button many times, but it said the 'error...' message.
    So i ejected it to try again, now when i connect the USB external hard drive it doesn't show up on my desktop or disk utilities.
    I really just want to either repair or recover the data on it because it literally has everything (documents, work files, photos etc) on it,
    I downloaded an application to recover my files but it needs the USB to at least show up.recognise it which mine doesn't.
    I know i should've backed it up on another USB, this definitely teaches me for next time to back up all my files.
    Are the files lost forever or can i recover them by going to a shop or using a software?

    Thank you for responding.
    This might sound stupid since i'm not really knowledgeable with Macs,
    but since all my files were moved from my mac computer to the external hard drive,
    is it possible to recover those files through my Mac - like recovering deleted files? 

  • The library module in 4.3 version does not show all the images

    The library module in the version 4.3 of Lightroom does not show all the images. They are marked with gray boxes instead of images. This is especially true of the images which I tried to import to Lightroom since I downloaded 4.3 a few weeks ago. If I want to seen an image, I have to go to the develop module to see it. What should I do?  Get this fixed now!!!!!!!!

    My bet would be on a corrupt preview folder.
    Your preview folder is located in the same folder as your catalog. It has the same name as your catalog with the word Previews.LRDATA at the end of the name. Rename this folder and let Lightroom rebuild the previews. Go to Library>Previews>Render Standard-sized Previews.  See if that fixes it.
    If it doesn't, you may want to have a look here: http://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/kb/photos-appear-black-gray-rectangles.html

  • Moved Itunes to external hard drive & now Ipod not showing up in itunes?

    I recently installed an external hard drive and moved Itunes and all my music to it. Now when I plug in my Ipod, Itunes doesn't recognize it. And it doesn't show up in my computer, but the pod says its "connected". It does show up in the USB devices and so does the hard drive, but they are listed seperately. But both devices are plugged into the same USB spliter.
    what is happening?
    help!!!

    Hi, BreezerSB2.
    It sounds like you may not have followed the instructions described in this article in the Apple Knowledge Base.
    If that's not possible - or you don't want to do so - and the music files are in fact on your external drive, you can add them to your iTunes Library by referring to this article 's Add to Library section.

  • When I use lightroom mobile it does not show all the photos in my camera roll.  I have 57 and it only shows 32

    WHen I use lightroom mobile  I have 57 photos on my iphone . I transfer them to my ipad and then I try to put them in Lightroom mobile from my ipad camera roll and only 32 show and transfer

    Same problem here, and with even fewer photos. There should be 14 photos (per the LR collection info), but when I view on my iPhone (5s), only 11 appear. They do all appear on my computer.  I've tried the following to make it work on my phone:
    Creating a new collection and importing there. It says one photo is in the collection, but none actually appear.
    Completely shutting down and rebooting the iPhone.
    Deleting and re-downloaded the app.
    None of these have worked.

  • I recently updated my e-mail address with apple, but now it does not show all the "purchased" music that I purchased under my old e-mail address.  How can I re-gain access to those hundreds of purchased songs?

    I recently updated my e-mail address with apple, but now it does not show all the "purchased" music that I purchased under my old e-mail address.  How can I re-gain access to those hundreds of purchased songs?

    You are trying to find a loophole to circumvent a basic rule that prohibits the transfer of purchased content from one Apple ID to another.
    Content tied to an Apple ID are bound to that Apple ID forever. You can not merge or trade accounts. Well, not (officially) anyway...

  • Music on my phone does not show all the iTunes artwork, even after doing a backup restore, eliminating all music and restoring

    Music on my phone does not show all the iTunes artwork, even after doing a backup restore, eliminating all music and restoring  I have an iphone5 64 syncing about 8000 songs, so updating all is a time consuming, and now maddening process. Never had a problem before iOS 8. Someone (hello Apple) needs to develop a utility to help manage artwork recovery.

  • Iphone won't sync after moving iPhoto library to external hard drive

    I moved my iPhoto library to an external hard drive, now my iTunes will not sync with my iphone. It has an error when syncing photos and quits
    iPhoto works just fine, iTunes works just fine. This only occurs when syncing. Please help!

    Put your iPhoto library on the external hard drive and hold your Option key down when opening iPhoto. Then just select the library on the external drive. You can have multiple libraries too.

  • IPhoto library on external hard drive will no longer open

    I'm hoping that someone will be able to point me to a simple solution to my problem...
    I'm running iPhoto 9.6 on a  MacBook Pro (Retina, 13 inch, mid-2014).  The OS is Yosemite 10.10.1.  Because the flash storage is only 250GB I have my main iPhoto library (146GB) on a partition of an external 1TB Lacie Rugged drive.  The external hard drive also has partitions for Time Machine Backup and SuperDuper Bootable Clone.  I have a separate, much smaller iPhoto library on the MBP which contains recent photos.
    Yesterday I failed to reconnect my MacBook Pro to the power source when I put it back on my desk.  The result was that the battery went below 5% and the MBP turned itself off and also ejected the external hard drive (some time after I reconnected the power cable there were dialog boxes on my screen informing me that each of the three partitions had been ejected incorrectly).  I waited until the MBP was fully charged before I tried to open my 'main' iPhoto library on the external hard drive.  I received a message that the library would have to be upgraded to work with the computer (very odd, because it had already been upgraded last October when I upgraded from Mavericks to Yosemite and has been working without any real problem ever since then).
    After some hours when the only message on the screen was 'Rebuiding Thumbnail Caches' I pressed Cmd+Option+Esc I saw that iPhoto was 'Paused'  - that message subsequently changed to 'Not Responding'.  I 'Force Quit' iPhoto but the iPhoto library will not open at all from the external drive.
    As a test I quit iPhoto and re-started using the Option key and chose to open the iPhoto library which is on the internal drive and it opened without any problem.
    I recall that it used to be possible to fix this sort of thing (perhaps not) by trashing the com.apple.iPhoto.plist file, however, I don't seem to be able to find it :-(
    I'm really at a loss as to how I should approach this problem and I would be very grateful for any suggestions that can be offered.
    Cheers
    Tricia

    Further update ....
    I downloaded and installed iPhoto Library Manager and then chose Library - Rebuild Library.  Unfortunately, when it had finished the result was 0 images in any file or folder.  I checked the log (which is incredibly long) but here's the beginning of it which seems to indicate that the problem is that an essential file is missing -

    As mentioned in an earlier post I do have another iPhoto Library on my 2008 MacBook.
    Can someone advise the best way to proceed?  I'm thinking that I should erase the partition of my external hard drive that is called Pictures and then connect the external hard drive to my 2008 MacBook and simply drag and drop the iPhoto Library to the Pictures partition.  IIRC, that's the way I moved the iPhoto Library last October when I bought my new MacBook Pro which didn't have enough storage for me to be able to store my iPhoto Library on the MBP.  I could then reconnect the external hard drive to my MBP and the iPhoto Library should reappear, shouldn't it?
    Looking forward to more input ...

  • Need to transfer iphoto library to external hard drive

    need to transfer iphoto library to external passport drive. It will not let me drag and drop

    Welcome to Apple Support Communities
    The external drive is formatted in NTFS, a format that OS X can't write in. You have to erase the external disk.
    First, open Finder, choose the external drive in the sidebar, under "Devices", and copy all the content of your external drive to another folder like Desktop.
    Then, follow these steps to format the external drive in "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" as Format > http://pondini.org/OSX/DU1.html Finally, drag the iPhoto library to the external drive

  • Can't access iPhoto library on external hard drive (from Mavericks days) now that I'm running Yosemite on my Macbook.

    I have an iPhoto library on an external hard drive (from when I had Mavericks), but now that I've upgraded to Yosemite, "Photos" won't open my iPhoto library. Ideas for how to import that iPhoto Library into Photos?

    "Photos" won't open my iPhoto library. Ideas for how to import that iPhoto Library into Photos?
    What is the file system of the external drive, and how is the drive connected?  DO you get an error message? If yes, which message?
    You can only open a library on a directly connected drive, formatted MacOS Extended (Journaled).  If the drive is correctly formatted, hold down the alt/options key while you are launching photos, and then select your library from the Library Chooser Panel.
    If the library is not listed in the panel, use the "Other Library" button.
