trouble with iPhoto events - not showing pics

Hi. When I open an event in iPhoto, I just get a blank. As if there were no photos there.

However, when looking at ALL the events, and I scroll the mouse pointer over the event it does the "quick slide show" as I move the mouse over the principle photo.

Also, when looking at "all photos" (i.e., not in events) the pictures are there.

I figure there is a simple way to "rebuild" the database. How? where?

FYI: I also have Aperture installed. Does that affect it?

Have you updated it just incase?

iPhoto sorts your photos by Event.
Is there any video in there?
If you have no photos in a particular Event that Event could be corrupted?
 or was not imported correctly from the camera?
Do you have duplicates?
 If you like, you can turn multiple Events into one large Event. Just drag one Event onto another to merge them.
There is a good video guide on youtube for just about anything, check this one out

Have you done anything, were you dragging them to another folder or some such?
Importing into Aperture?
I sourced these
When I imported from IPhoto to Aperture did I create a duplicate library

Thanks. I actually ended up using Fat Cat Software – iPhoto Library Manager

I tried the suggestions as posted on your links, but nothing worked. However, these lead me to iPhoto Library Manager. Thanks

Glad to see I could help a bit gregholl, for sure there is nothing more frustrating than the fear of losing all your precious pictures.
The Library manager looks good thanks for the tip on that.
