importing into lightroom catalog on a mac

Feb 21, 2012 7:24 PM

I just moved my lightroom catalog on an external drive to a mac from a pc.  I got the entire catalog moved with no issues or problems except for this.  When I try to import new photos i get a message saying that the file cannont be read and that the files were not imported.  Has anyone else run into this issue while using a mac?  Thanks for any help

    How did you format the external drive?  It needs to be FAT32 if you want it to be able to be read and written by both PC and Mac.  Sometimes when LR says "cannot be read" it also or instead means "cannot be written".
