tried 3.1.1 update, and neither works for me.
I noticed you chimed in with a couple of posts on this problem, but can you describe the exact symptoms you're currently experiencing? Perhaps you're seeing slightly different phenomena than others here whose issues were fixed by 3.1.1.
I just cannot see my photos in iphoto, itunes, screensaver or desktop pictures. I have tried a number of things (at the suggestions of these forums) to no avail; deleting timestamp file, rebuilding my library and also deleting the iphoto p31 plugin. I called apple, and their advice is to make a new library and import this library into the new library. I have 250,000 files in my library and I am loathe to do this.
the 3.1.1 update solved the problem from my perspective.
can now see the Aperture library in my iLife previews.
this is great - Apple were clearly listening.
It would have been good to know they knew about this and were working on it.
A simple post by staff to this thread would have put my mind at rest and stopped me trying multiple other options, and wasting my time!!!
So Apple - it seems you are listening... but why don't you speak?

thanks for post - i understand the need not to raise expectations, but to not know if they are working on it seems a bit daft to me.
I also appreciate that there may be a danger of getting dragged into answering fora posts and not then working on the problem!
I think it would be simple courtesy to make a statement to customers that we have heard your complaints and either:
a) are working on this actively to produce a solution in the next software update, or;
b) are not working on this at present due to other priorities, but we are monitoring the thread

Do you even see the iPhoto and Aperture icons when Media->Photos is selected in a File dialog?
If so, does the dialog just hang if you open the triangle next to Aperture, or show no photos?

Just to be complete, the "deleting timestamp" trick also requires making the iLifeShared directory read-only.

Whoa, that is a pretty big library. An alternative is to export (ie, make a copy of) part of your library and export it as a new library. Then switch Aperture to that library, and quit the program:
Does anything change at that point when you open a File dialog box?
