Import and develop strips camera presets.

When I import my photos and look at each one for the first time it looks fine for about half a second then change.  For instance,  If I set my camera for black and white, the photo will be black and white on my computer for about half a second then change to color.  This happens to all my photos that I may have set the presets for contrast, saturation and sharpness.  How do I stop lightroom 4 from stripping these camera presets?

    What you are seeing he is completely normal for raw images.  Lightroom does not read in-camera adjustments such as saturation, picture styles, black and white, etc.  For raw images.  All those adjustments have to be made using Lightroom.  If you want a black and white image straight from the camera using Lightroom, then you'll have to shoot it in JPEG mode.
