Same problem for me.
I was planning to put all my pictures on my DS110j, for ease of use, and accessible to all my devices (computers, iPad, etc.).
I did a test with 30 pictuers (total 30MB), which took a lot of time to upload. (I was trying with the Syno Assistant, then with direct copy in the Finder.... same..)
Then, what a surprise !!! when it took an hour to generate the thumbnails (and the index??) for only 30 pictures.
I don't think I'll be able to put my 10 000 pictures on the DS.
Is it a known issue? Is there a fix?
Or maybe, nobody is using Photo Station? (I doubt there is this built-in Application, and nobody is using it... why keep it, if it's just useless?)
Thanks for your info and help,
