For some reason, I cant import any photos to my external hard drive. When I try to, it loads so slowly and when the photos start showing up, I get an error saying that "Lightroom has encountered problems reading this photo."
I can import directly to my computer's (PC) C drive just fine and the external has a little over 100 GB's available. The day before this happened, I imported photos just fine. Whats even weirder is that ALL my photos in Lightroom "cannot be found".
Can anyone tell me what the heck is going on??
"Lightroom has encountered problems reading this photo."
This usually means that the photo is corrupted. The most likely culprits are a bad camera card or bad card reader, but any piece of hardware (hard disk, memory, USB cable, USB port) can be the cause.
ALL my photos in Lightroom "cannot be found".
This means that you have moved or renamed or delete the photos (or the folders that contain them) outside of Lightroom. To fix the problem, see: Adobe Lightroom - Find moved or missing files and folders
