Up to now I used Lr4. Always had my catalog and images on an external HD. Never had any problems saving changes in that catalog to that HD. Now I upgraded to Lr5 CC. After installation, I tried to open my catalog on said ext HD but received the following error report:
Lightroom cannot open the catalog named “...” located on volume “TOSHIBA 1TB” because Lightroom cannot save changes to this location.
How can I get Lr5 to work with my old catalog on my ext. HD?
Any help will be much appreciated.
Are you sure LR has writing privileges on the folder containing the LR4 catalog. LR5 does actually not wanting to write to the LR4 catalog but it need to be able to create a new LR5 catalog in the same folder where it will put an upgraded copy pf the LR5 catalog.
Problem solved: Found out that the software that allowed me to write to the ext hdd had been removed during a system upgrade. So it was not a problem with Lr5. Thanks anyway!
