Quote "Following files were not imported because they can't be read"
Make sure you have full permissions to read and write for all the locations you are trying to import the files to. (e.g. If you are trying to import/copy files to a drive/folder where you only have read access you will get this message) I believe the reason you see this mesage is because before LR can read the files is they first have to be written/copied to the destination.
Make sure you have full read/write access to all drives/folders you are working with.
ok, thanks. It appears it was going to users/my name/pictures/lightroom/different years. I changed it to destination "other" and made a new folder in lightroom, and it appears to be downloading.
So might I ask, is there REALLY much difference in LR4 under develop? If you aren't processing batches of pics at a time, and you are just picking and choosing this one and that one? I don't see much change on items like "teatment". "tone", presence", "detail", etc. This is mainly what I do, individually, though sometimes I will sync a bunch at a time.
Finally, if I might ask, I don't know what I did, but in my LR 3, under the TONE CURVE, there used to be a box below it that said "region", and you could adjust highlights, lights, shadows and darks, and it disappeared! I looked under LR help, and there was nothing; I tried online and couldn't find answers. Surely there is some key that I can touch or click to get that to come back?
thanks and I'll give you 4 stars for the first answer!

Most of us agree that the new process version in Lr4 (PV 2012) is vastly better. The most obvious improvement is in highlight recovery, which now really works, whereas the old PV 2010 did little more than muddy the highlights (and in my mind was completely useless). You won't notice much difference until you start working the sliders.
As for the curve panel you're probably in "point curve" (where you can also adjust individual channels). Click the little icon bottom right to go back:
