I'm trying to import 2,000 new images to LR 3.4 and it imports the first 25 as always, then just stalls. The progress bar just sits there, like it's working, but it never progresses and additional images never import. The program works fine, if a bit slow, during this time -- I can view, develop, etc.
Have been using LR for years and never had this problem before. On a MacPro using 10.5.8. Just back from an assignment with the new batch of images. No changes have been made to the hardware.
Any ideas? I'll go crazy if I have to import all 2,000 images 25 at a time...
Good idea, except it stalls no matter which images I'm trying to import. I keep trying to re-import and it brings in 25 new images each time and then stalls again.
I tried creating a new catalog and then it imported 50 images the first time, and only 25 each import thereafter. Crazy-ville.
Diga, first remove the prefernce file to your desktop and try again, the location is: user>library>preferences>com.adobe.lightroom
remove any lightroom ones (with Lightroom closed) to the desktop and restart LR. Test import - fingers crossed!!
Thanks for the tip, I have tried this also, unfortunately no luck.
Some how this seems to be an old problem, I had something like this almost two years ago. I've been using Lightroom for sveral years, with over 60K in the library. So, the love hate relationship, its really costing me money now, I have my hands tied. I can not import, 2 days ago I could not import DNG files created from Hasselblads Phocus program.
I've tried many workarounds- importing and renaming - importing and saving to a new location - importing form the current location. Removed the preferences as you suggested. I can see the images I want to import in the contact window inside LR, today 1 image imported. I've tried installing 3.5 RC no luck .
