I recently installed and I have been using LR without issue for a few weeks now. I imported all my photos which were stored in sub-folder (with sub-folders) off an external drive. No problem whatsoever ... 50,000+ pics imported, along with hundreds of videos from still cams. Works beautifully.
I now want to try using LR to catalog photos/videos for a client project. Much smaller number of pics and videos (~400 pics, 100 videos) ...
Here is what I have tried:
It's almost like there is a shortcut to "c:\" or "Computer" in one of the client folders and it is seeing it as a sub-folder.
Any idea WHY this is happening and how to fix it? Something that should have taken a few minutes is now wasted nearly a couple of hours.
Thanks for your help.
Ok, I figured out WHAT is causing it, but not the WHY ...
Apparently it does not like the format of one or more of the video files contained in a sub-directory. Not sure why, as I believe they are all standard MJPG AVI's, if I'm not mistaken. Also, I don't understand why this would then cause it to add everything from another drive.
(Also, I forgot to mention: This is Windows 7 Pro (64-bit) and Lightroom 5.6.)
