The iPhoto library MUST be on a volume formatted Mac OS extended (journaled) or it will not work. Move it to your internal drive and create a properly formatted disk image for use on you NAS

Just want to be sure on this, as Time Machine has the same limitation, but works when used via an afp:// format link rather than and smb:// link.
iPhoto itself is actually working, it just has this meaningless error appear from time to time.
So it would be interesting to understand why it doesn't work from a developer perspective and whether its likely to be fixed in the future?
I ask this, as NAS storage is ideal for photography, so iPhoto becomes very expensive to use, if it only supports internal storage devices.
Or am I missing something?

We are just users like yourself. No idea of why things are like they or , if they will ever change or if they so when
Yes it seems like a NAS is a perfect place for the iPhoto library for many reasons but it does not work there based on specs and reports
And as far as different access methods - beyond my pay grade. Maybe someone here knows more about NAS access
And suggestions to apple. IPhoto menu ==> provide iPhoto feedback are a good idea

Have you found solution? I have the same problem, but I see this message not just after performing an inport, it appears every time, when I make iPhoto active, when i come to its window from another app. It's annoing)

I am having the same issue but have lived with it for a while now. I moved it to a NAS as mentioned above and that started the issues mentioned. I found many latency issues using NAS for iPhoto so I moved it back. It is running local on my MAC now but still giving me the error. The annoying part and why I am finally posting something is it forgets where you left off in iPhoto.

You may have damaged the library by having it on the NAS - Back up your iPhoto library, Depress and hold the option (alt) and command keys and launch iPhoto - rebuild your iPhoto library
