Hey I have a White MacBook2,1 2.16 GHZ intel core 2 duo. I had all my pictures loaded into iphoto and now when I open iphoto it says there is no pictures there and any pictures I save to my desktop become corrupted files so that preview wont open them. but it shows Iphoto as using 3.2 gb on disk space which tells me that the photos are still there just not accessible. the same has now also happened with my itunes music....... any help would be great

Mac OS X (10.4.3)

    Welcome to the Apple user discussion forums

    1 - Rest easy - So far I have never seen iPhoto lose a single photo - hardware failures have, users have but iPhoto has not - it may lose track of them but unless you deleted them or your disk failed they are there

    2 - the following statement makes no sense

    now when I open iphoto it says there is no pictures there and any pictures I save to my desktop become corrupted files so that preview wont open them.


    Can you explain please

    3 - the following statement implies that you either have a hard disk failing or that you are doing things that are corrupting your libraries

    the same has now also happened with my itunes music



    What version of iPhoto do you have?

    How big is your hard drive and how much free space do you have on it?

    Have you made any changes to the iPhoto library through the finder or programs other than iPhoto?
