I have Lightroom 4 and cannot import from my canon 40d. It says it's importing files and the progress bar looks like they are being imported but nothing shows up. In catalog side bar says current import 0. Can't bring any into LR4 from my computer either.
Dorin's question is valid. However, I have no experience (in LR3 or LR4) importing directly from the camera. I do all my imports using a card reader and I have had no problems importing images from a Canon 40D (nor a Canon 5D for that matter). But like I said, I do not import from the card in the camera. I only use a card reader.
I thought I wrote from the camera, but didn't. I'm importing from my camera. Have always done this with older versions. Why would matter of how the photos are uploaded? But I did say I can't even import picture that are on my computer. Thanks

No, you didn't.
If you import fails from a hard drive, a card reader or a mass storage* connected camera — thats's one thing. If you cannot import from a PTP* connected camera — that's another.
So how do you import?
* Mass storage is when your system sees a camera as a drive and PTP — as a camera.
