    Why won't Lightroom 5 & 6 import my photos? Only 4 will...

      I was using 3, then 4, then 5 just fine. Suddenly 5 stopped importing photos. So I had to revert back to 4. I just updated to 6 & it does the same thing. Same import message, not even really an error. Screen Shot 2015-04-30 at 9.41.58 AM.png

          Lightroom 4 is obviously importing to a different directory than Lightroom 5 and Lightroom 6.

           

          The problem is that the directory where the photos are to be copied into in LR5 and LR6 does not have WRITE permission. Determine what directory that is, by looking in the Import dialogbox on the right in the Destination section, and then go into your operating system and change the permssions so the directory has WRITE permission.
