Ch02 This DataLoader does not contain any batches

Running this code:

bears =, min_scale=0.3))
dls = bears.dataloaders(path)
dls.train.show_batch(max_n=4, nrows=1, unique=True)

ValueError: This DataLoader does not contain any batches

I have run all code before, run dls.train.items and there are items in the dataloader but no batches.


Hi, I had the same problem, it came out because I was only testing a few images, the batch size is by default bs = 64. If you change that value for a lower one, it will work.

dls = bears.dataloaders(path,bs=5)
dls.show_batch(nrows=1, ncols=3)


Thanks! I got the same problem yesterday. :grinning:
