I was trying to import images with LR4 from an SD card that I have used with LR before. The card is not corrupt as it works with other functions and devices. I got a message that the images could not be imported because they could not be read. I upgraded to LR 5 and got the same message. To check and see if it could possibly be the card, I tried to import images from the hard drive and it still did not import. What can I do to fix this? I have never had problems importing before.
This usually means that the destination folder in the Lightroom Import dialog box Destination Panel does not have WRITE permissions.
You may have accidentally changed this folder, in which case you need to change it back to the previous folder you were using. Or you can go into your operating system and change the permissions for this folder.
