Default PS3 sees Music folder but not Movies or Pictures

Hi
I have about 300Gb of multimedia on my Stora in sub folders under the FamilyLibrary folders (e.g. a 'Music' folder under 'FamilyMusic', a 'Pictures' folder with other subfolders under 'FamilyPhotos' and 'Videos' with subfolders under 'FamilyVideos' folder). They are all being shared at the Family.... folder level. Stora has indexed everything correctly as I can see all the files using the web browser to connect to the stora, however on my PS3 I can only see my Music folder. When I try to browse to Vidoes and Pictures on the PS3 with the XMB it says there are no pictures/videos. I know its not a firewall issue as music files are all OK. Any ideas?
Thanks

hi,

on my Stora I have created folders tv & films under the Movies folder. To access these on my PS3 I am in the film area of the PS3, then go Video > Folders > OurMovies?

Is this is how you access them?

structure on stora is:
FamilyLibrary>>FamilyVideos>>Videos>>Movies/TV etc
FamilyLibrary>>FamilyMusic>>Music>>Artist Folders etc
FamilyLibrary>>FamilyPhotos>>Photos>>Folder1/Folder2 etc

I have tried sharing at the FamilyLibrary folder level and each FamilyXX folder level, have also put all multimedia into the FamilyMusic folder since this share seems to work and still cannot see photos or videos.

On PS3 for videos (for example) I go to video >> Stora (unPNP) >>
browse folder, all folders whatever I try nothing is there, but its all indexed and present on the stora through http console and I can access them as a windows share.

Did you try to use the Share with DMA for the files/folder that you want to access using your PS3?

Yes I am using share with DMA via the stora web client (as well as having the folders as mapped network drives on PC - mapping is irrelevant in this case)
Stora sees music, but nothing else. Videos and photos are configured the same as music, but only music is visible.
One other thing to note is that I had a couple of video files registered in my itunes library and they showed up, so from what i can gather it is only currently sharing itunes library and ignoring anything in my videos and photos folders even though i have enabled dma sharing via stora web console

Try unsharing all folders. Create one new folder and put 1 movie in it and share it. Does it appear?

Make sure you are using the "search for media servers" option, even if your PS3 currently sees your Stora.

Thanks,
Roby!

Tried that but it still cannot see the Video folder (including the new one).
Is this an issue with PS3 DNLA sharing or issue with stora?
Has anyone else had problems sharing to PS3 with their stora?

Can you play the same video files on your PS3 from a USB stick?

Yes, they play both from ext hd/usb and if saved to the ps3 hd. It's not a file type issue (otherwise they would show up on ps3 list as 'unsupported data') - its a streaming issue either with ps3 or stora.

Do you have a Vista/Win7 PC? If so, launch Windows Media Player and enable media sharing. Does it see the Stora?

Thanks,
Roby!
