You're not typing (or clicking) during import are you - maybe hitting the "B&W key"? Hard to imagine anything else resulting in "random" b&w conversions..
It is during the import - for some reason some images that a low color tend to covert to B&W - the clicking problem (auto convert to B&W) does happen while the import is going.
Is there an option to force default all imports to be the non-adjusted or autocorrect but color?
Sorry Animeditor - I have no idea why some photos are getting auto-converted to B&W. Like you, I'd not expect that to happen.
Maybe somebody else will have something for you.
