After upgrading to Lightroom 5.7 file import is no longer possible, neither jpg nor raw, neither files from panasonic, nikon or fuji. Error: "files cannot be imported, because they cannot be read". Same error, no matter of using the card-slot or trying to import from hard-disk. So the card-slot is ok, because I can use it for every other operation. Im running a macbookpro with OS X 10.8.5. With LR 5.6 last week everything works very well. What the hell is it?
This error means that the destination folder (as specified in the Import dialog box Destination panel) does not have WRITE permission. Change your permissions (or change the folder to one that does have WRITE permission)
Thanks a lot! That´s it!
It took me a while to understand what you had meant and to find out, where and how to change the default setting. I did not change the preset intentionally before and I´m quite sure that LR 5.7 did not do so. There is a faint suspicion that it was done by an OS X update. Perfectly horrible!
Yes, quite likely this has been a tormentor of OSX users since the outbreak of Mavericks.
