Any thoughts on what I may have done wrong? Default folders were set up properly with iCloud Control Panel was installed.

Photostreaming is turned on.


Possible additional information.

When I try to reset the photostream, it tells me there was a server error and to try later, it has been a week now with several tries each day.

iPad, iOS 4.3.3

    Kudos to Apple from a PC/Windows techie.


    Someone at Apple, at least one, is actually browing these discussion groups and taking action.


    I received a phone call from Apple today. Asking for more information, trying to work through a few scenarios, and gathering up some data to forward to the engineering group.


    Having been a PC user/developer since DOS 3.0, and participated in many forums on each version through to Win7, I have never had MS take the initiative and contact a user to work an issue.


    Hats off to Apple! Hopefully a solution will follow.

    Similar problem here, PhotoStream works on my iPhone, MacBook Air, and MacPro, but doesn't work on my Windows 7 x64 PC. I've installed the iCloud control panel, and the Contacts and Calendars & Tasks work on the PC, but no pics showup in the PhotoStream downloads folder, and pics I add to the Uploads folder don't show up on the other devices. Please post back here if you get this solved.


    TIA,  -Ed

    I'm having the same problem here.  When I take photos on my ipod, it goes to photo stream fine on the device, however it does not sync with the photo stream folder on my windows 7 pc.  I have icloud running and photo stream turned on, and I double checked the destination folders and no luck all day taking photos.  I need the pics to stream live to my pc whenever I take them so any help would be great!

    The same has happened to me with a slightly different twist.  It was working for about the first 8 hours and then without any errors communicated, I stopped receiving updates and none of the uploads were going either.  I only have about 10, 2 meg pictures that should sync.  I have a Dell 64 bit workstation.

    usually my photos I take on my iphoen will upload to the cloud fine (photo stream), but when I come to my computer to find the pictures they are not there. The only quick fix to get them to push to my computer is to uncheck the box on my computer for Photo Stream, hit apply, then re-enable it again. This will then update my folder with all my current pictures.

    I have to wonder when Apple is going to address this issue, and the one where Photostream is grayed out on the iCloud Control Panel and can't be selected.


    It has been over 6 weeks now, and no indiciation that Apple is doing anything to fix their iCloud.

    Plus one here. windows 7 computer at work, iCloud installed and works for everything else, ubt photos don't show up in either direction (PhotoStream on PC or uploaded to cloud from my PC)

  • rturner2 Level 1 Level 1

    Not working for me either. Everything else for iCloud is working except photo syncing up and down on Windows 7 64 bit.


    I had one image come through about 6 hours after I took the photo. Let's see if my next images takes that long. So much for the instant icloud we see on the ads.


    Works fine between my iPhone and iPad.

    Same problem here! I have windows 7 64bit and have no problems with photostream syncing to my HP laptop until the icloud control panel and ios7 updated the first time. I have tried renaming folders, reseting EVERYTHING. Nothing has worked. I seam to have lost all of my pictures that were on icloud, fortunately I back up my pictures to an external hard drive. Everything picture I have taken since has backed up to icloud, but not to my photostream n my laptop. Back to the stone age when I had to manually back up my pictures from my phone.
