Greyed out images cannot be imported because the photos have previously been imported into LR. Thus there is no need to import them again. You need to find the photos in Lightroom's Library Module and then you can use them in Lightroom.
I have this same issue and this is the first time that I have imported these photos. I give me a message that the RAWS can not be imported.
Please quote the exact unedited word-for-word error message.
The message says "Some import operations were not performed" "the files are not recognized by the raw format in Lightroom."
Im confused I have always been about to upload raws.
"the files are not recognized by the raw format in Lightroom."
1. Your version of Lightroom is 'old' and you need to update/upgrade.
2. Your camera is 'new' and your version of Lightroom cannot read the new raw file format.
So report back your Version NUMBER of Lightroom by posting the top 10 lines from- LR MENU: HELP > SYSTEM INFO...
And tell us your Camera Model NUMBER- Check your Camera model at- Cameras supported by Camera Raw
