On the right hand side of the import dialog box, there should be a section named "Destination". Is it there and is it expanded, or is it not there? If it's not there, right-click on a different section heading such as "File Handling" and place a check next to "Destination".
Also, please state what version of Lightroom you are using, what operating system you are using, and exactly what the error message is.
Hi, thanks for your help. Im really stumped. Yes all the file handling and destination folders are showing. I am using lightroom 4.4, its updated. i used it a few days ago with no problem. Basically i do my usually and upload and click import. During import, the white bar goes very fats and no imported preview images pop up. And it almost freezes like- saying copy and import photos in the upper left corner. On the main screen it just continues to say importing files. I have tried several cards and two different usb cords. Nothing so far and I have been trying for the last three hours, while reading forums.
thanks again for your help!!
If you have a card reader, can you import the files using the card reader?
If you don't have a card reader, can you use your operating system to copy the files to your hard disk and then import into Lightroom using "Add"?
i am on my way to get a card reader now give that a try. How do i use my operating system to copy the files. I see that i can import and Add from my existing folders under my Mac - pictures.
Again, Appreciate the help. Im going nuts!
You would copy the photos from camera card to hard disk the same as you copy any other files in Mac Finder. Copy and Paste, or Drag and Drop.
So, I bought the card reader and all photos are
importing fine now. Thanks agin for the support. I don't know how I would have figured it out otherwise.
