This message means that you do not have WRITE permission to the destination directory (where the photos will be copied to). So, here is what you should do
- Go to the Import dialog box in Lightroom, and make a note of the destination directory (it may not be the diretory you were using previously, sometimes it gets changed accidentally)
- Change the permissions on this directory to WRITE permission (or change the desitnation directory back to the directory you had been using previously)
I have a cf card in right now and on the top I have "Copy as DNG" highlighted as opposed to copy. When you say import dialogue box are you referring to the destination tab? Right now I am only seeing that this import is marked checked under Mac HD in a folder for 2014 and by date. I dont see anything else checked off. Not sure where I find the previous destination directory.
Yes, the Destination tab specifies where the files are supposed to go to. Check the permissions on that 2014 folder, and change to WRITE if necessary
There is no indication in the Import dialog where it pointed to previously; normally you would know where the previous photos are being copied to, or you could find out in the Library Module.
Ok - success! What I did was on the top bar I clicked the mac hard drive icon and it told me where the previous storage was and I clicked on the one I was able to recognize.
Thank you so much!
And....thank you to all help us less tech savvy people on the forum. You are a lifesaver and save us wasted hours trying to deal with techs on the phone with Adobe.
