Lightroom 3.4.1 does not recognize files

Sep 11, 2011 6:36 AM

Suddenly Lightroom cannot read any files from three different cameras (Leica, Nikon, Canon) in various formats (jpeg and raw for each camera).  Same files are easily read in Photoshop and iPhoto.

 

Have tried to reset preferences but still cannot open any files.  Get the message "the following files were not imported because they cannot be read". 

 

Is there a solution to this?  Have re-installed Lightroom but with no success.

    That message can also mean that the files cannot be written.

     

    Make sure that you have write permission to the folder(s) to which you are copying/moving the images.

    ok, so I did this but it didn't say specifically administrator and other users. it said system, wheel, and everyone. so I changed it to read & write for all three. But it didn't fix the problem.
