Trouble Downloading Images to LR4

May 14, 2013 11:35 PM

Tags: #lr4 #import_failed

I am using a USB card reader to download images to LR4. When I plug the reader into the USB port I get an error message saying, "images on card do not meet download criteria". The thumbnails appear in Library mode but when I click on "Import", another error message appears saying the files could not be read.


As recently as last week I successfully downloaded images from the same card. As usual I reformatted the card before going on today's shoot. Does anybody have any idea what might be going on here?  Thanks

    Try and download the file outside the Lightroom and then import in Lightroom


    There can be issues on several hardwares where you cant import the files from usb sticks.
