Slideshow screen saver stuck at "Loading Photos..."
Recently my Slideshow screen saver gets stuck at "Loading Photos..." I can't say for sure exactly when I started noticing it but I'll say at least 2 weeks. The most I've waited was 10 minutes to see if it was just taking longer to load vs. it's a real problem. I'll say it's a real problem.
Here are other details I can think of:
Can someone give me pointers on what else I can do to try to track down the problem?
Thanks in advance.

In my case the issue occurs where the Screen Saver attempts to start. It indicates "Loading Photos" but never does. When I exit the screen saver I get a dialog box that says can't access the server. I spent several days deleting preferences and such but couldn't pinpoint the exact culprit. What really confuses the heck out of me was that after getting the screen saver working on my MacBook Pro the same issue happened on my Mac Pro.
The problem returned again on my MacBook Pro and I am thinking it is related to the issue with iPhoto. Even though I don't use photos from it for the screen saver I cleared my problem after deleting the items in the following folder.
This cleared my problem on my MacBook Pro.

slideshow screensaver malfunctions.... still
Has anyone found a solution to this problem. I am experiencing exactly the same as Joe Gudac. Whenever the slideshow-screensaver is activated (even if that is in the example window in systempreferences, it remains stuck at loading photo's and causes a warning box that some external HD cannot be found.
I have tried reinstalling ML, rebuilding the Aperture library, deleting all sorts of .plist files mentioned in several fora, but nothing seems to remove the link to the HD that no longer exists.
As far as I can tell it's not that complicated, since the problem only seems to be in a reference. The only issue then is how to alter that reference.
Any help is much appreciated since Apple appearently don't care (this problem is also discussed in their own forums). How can I:
a) delete the file with the incorrect reference or
b) alter that file to chance the reference so that the slideshow screensaver can select an iPhoto or Aperture library?

Sorry I stopped tracking my thread when there weren't any responses the first couple of weeks. I wound up calling AppleCare and the tech suggested I remove the ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.systempreferences (or something like that) file, which seemed to solve my problem. I haven't had a recurrence of the issue since.
Hope that helps.
