Troubleshooting downloading issues

If fotoShare is not downloading the latest images, try the following:

  • Make sure you have the latest version of fotoShare from the App Store.
  • Before you start fotoShare on the iPad, make sure that dslrBooth is running and connected to the same wifi connection as fotoShare.
  • Make sure only one instance of dslrBooth is running on the network. You cannot have two booths connected to the same network.
  • Make sure dslrBooth's Enhanced Sharing is checked under Settings, Sharing.
  • Go to dslrBooth and change in the Album Name to create a new album for fotoShare to download from. fotoShare will only download photos from your latest album and photos within 24 hours.
  • Go to iOS Settings, fotoShare, and make sure you have your correct dslrBooth registration e-mail and the first 5 characters of your serial # entered there.
  • Make sure your iPad and dslrBooth are connected to the same network. If you're using a hotspot, make sure it is configured to allow network access across your devices.
  • Some 3rd party firewall software might be blocking dslrBooth from sending the photos to fotoShare so disable your firewall software such as McAfee if you're having issues.
  • Some routers have a Wireless isolation, AP Isolation, Station Isolation, or Client Isolation feature that allows you to lock down your Wi-Fi network. This feature will block fotoShare from downloading photos photos from dslrBooth and needs to be disabled.
  • If your access point has two networks (2.4G vs 5G), make sure both your computer and iPad are connected to the same network.

    The system freezes after the 6th session of photos, when using fotoshare app. It will get stuck in the second or third picture. I’m using basic DSLRboth software.
