  1. image previews not showing for photos imported from windows phone 8


    in file explorer, the only preview images that show are ones imported from my android phone.

    there are no preview images whatsoever showing for photos previously imported from my windows 8 phone, either from pictures subfolders or from onedrive pictures folder.

    have tried view -> options -> change folder and search options -> always show icons, never thumbnails unchecked.

    did not work.

    have tried control panel -> system -> advanced settings -> performance -> custom -> show thumbnails instead of icons checked.

    did not work.

    any other suggestions, and insight into why WP photos not previewing on Windows PC?

    thanks!

    :)

    iPhone Photos import to Windows 10 PC not working

    I would like to troubleshoot my inability to import photos from iPhone to Windows 10. I am an advanced user struggling to find relevant help on the internet since most results are unusable masked adverts for paid third party software.

    I want to use it the following way

    1. connect iPhone via USB to my Windows 10 PC
    2. open Microsoft "Photos" app
    3. click in the upper right on import > add from the device over USB
    4. select all photos and click import

    4th step is where it fails, with no usable message.

    • I have set the device as trusted on iPhone
    • I mostly don't see it in My Computer, therefore I cannot just copy
    • I tried uninstalling every driver and iTunes software
    • Despite not being visible in Windows Explorer, iTunes can always access the contents with no issue
    • it has a tiny moments when it starts working, but overall import fails sooner or later and never copies all 3k photos. Mostly MSPhotos don't show any content, just failure message, sometimes it shows it's content and acts as I can select what to import, but as described fails sooner or later
    • iTunes can successfully copy entire phone.

      Other attempts
    • I tried multiple free 3rd party SW, all of them either failed or seemed like to be usable only after buying their extended version
    • I tried using iTunes for Syncing the Photos
      • I maybe don't know how to use it, or it is faulty too. But I've set the directory where my Photos should be synced, but sync seems to just backup the phone and creates tiny 'Photo Database file', but no photo actually gets copied onto PC.
     
  3. Photos App won't recognize my Windows Phone

    Hi,

    We appreciate you for being a part of Windows 10.

    I understand that the Photos app is not recognizing the Windows phone even though you can import the photos from the Windows phone through File explorer.

    Before proceeding, we need more information to help you better.


    • Did you tried to connect the Windows Phone to the other USB port and check to isolate the issue?

    • Is this the first time you are facing this issue with the Photos app after installing Windows 10?
    Kindly follow the below steps and check if it helps to fix the issue.

    Step 1:

    As you are able to import the photos from your phone through the File explorer, follow the below steps and check if it helps.


    • Make a folder called "testslide" (or whatever in File explorer)

    • Put 3 or 4 images which you have imported from the Windows phone to File explorer into the
      testslide folder.

    • Open Photos app, click on
      Setting
      (gear symbol) at the left bottom corner).

    • Choose Add a folder under the Sources.

    • Find this "testslide" folder and add the respective folder.

    • Now check whether the Photos app is showing the photos from the selected folder.
    Note: Try to turn off the option
    Show my cloud only content from One Drive in the Photos app settings menu and check to isolate the issue.

    If the issue persists, follow the below step.

    Step 2:

    I suggest you to run the Windows apps troubleshooter and check if it helps. Follow the below link to run the troubleshooter.

    Run the troubleshooter for Windows apps
