What exactly happens when you try to import? What do you see on your screen (or don't see)? Describe in great detail. Also, if there is an error message, please quote the complete unedited word-for-word verbatim error message.
A box comes up titled "import results"
then it reads:
Some import operations were not performed.
The following files were not imported because they could not be read. (617)
Go into the Import dialog box, and over on the right is the destination section. The folder specified there is the problem. It could be it has accidentally changed, and you could try changing it back to whatever it used to be. Or, you could change the permissions on that folder, using your operating system, to WRITE permission.
where do I find the Import Dialogue box?
File->Import Photos and Videos ...
thank you thank you thank you
