Sorry I should have said = Windows xp and pLoader v1.6
Which version of pLoader are you using? Which operating system?
For now, there is no new version of pLoader planned.
This has probably been observed before and may have been fixed in a recent version but I have foound that pLoader will not connect after accidently trying to load a video file. I drag and drop whole folders of pictures into pLoader to upload to my Piwigo service and occasionally I include a .mp4 or similar video file. each time I have done this the pLoader stops working and will not reconnect. The problem is resolved by deleting the C:\Documents and Settings\myusername\Local Settings\Application Data\.pLoader folder (as found in one of your previous forums). I haven't found any reasons or causes for pLoader stopping and not connecting in the forums but there are several citing the same problem.
