I have been using LR 5.7.1 through creative cloud. Using LR since verison 1 ) Using a card reader to import, LR now does not recognize all of the files on either SD or CF cards. To get LR to see all of the files, I must close LR and sturn off comptuer and back on again. --then LR might see all of the files on the cards. The lats time, LR saw the files, I clocked "import" and LR make the smart previews BUT when started to make the regular previews I watched the previews turn black right before my eyes. Now I Have no files--they are all black. I quit LR and looked at the files in Finder--all of the files are black there too. What has hapened and what can I do to get my files back. I put the card back into the camera--and the files are not tiny and it says "unidentified files" on teh camera LCD screen.
. What can I do? I'

Sounds like a hardware problem ... bad card reader would be my guess. What happens if you try hooking up the camera via USB cable and importing that way instead of the card reader?
Card reader—never thought of that. I tried a new card reader and test shots on other cards with both cameras. All seems to be working fine now. I even put in the old corrupted card and the same corrupted images are still black but the good ones are still good. Thanks again for your help. I have a big job coming up and I was quite worried.
