How do you know there are photos in the folders you are trying to Import from. Are you looking at those folders with Win Explorer (Windows File Manager) or Finder (Mac OS X File Manager) and you see actual image files, Not Shortcuts or Aliases to the image files?
In the import dialog window make sure "Add" is selected at the top. Or if you actually want to "Move" or "Copy" them to some other folder make sure you have a destination selected.
With either the "Move" or "Copy" item selected you have to first select a Destination before any image will show up.
Thanks for the reply. I now see that those files were old photoshop eps files, which seem to loose their suffix in mavericks and are not visible as images to lightroom--odd but true.
Now, I'm having problems with the search features. In the filters tag above the grid. I'm supposed to get options of "tex, attribute, metadata, and none" But what I actually get is "camera info, default columns, ...,filter off," and more but not text to search for name, number etc.
Any clues as to what I'm doing wrong or why text, attributes etc are not there?

First thing to do is shut down Lightroom and Reboot your Mac. Then open Lightroom, Grid view in the Library module then hit the back slash key to turn the filter bar off then again to turn it back on.
In the options area, Far Right just to the left of the Lock icon, select Filters Off. You should then see the headings Text Attribute Metadata None
Also make sure you don't have a Preset selected. Same options drop down at the bottom of the list.
Got it. Many thanks for the help.
