I've just bought a new computer and joined LR6 through CC. Sometimes when I connect my camera (Canon 5D iii) and go to import it is doing one of 3 things:
1. will import normally
2. will show import image thumbnails and then they all disappear after a few seconds
3. thumbnails stay in grid but when I click import there is an error message (files 0-150 etc can't be read)
If I get that error message, I can sometimes go back into import, and manually select 2 or 3 photos at a time and they will sometimes import successfully. Other times LR won't even recognise my camera as a source and I have to turn it off and on.
When I connect my camera to my old computer and import the same photos into LR 5, there is no problem which tells me it's not the camera but more likely my new version of LR or the way it is interacting with my camera.
My SD cards are probably over a year old but I don't think that would be the issue.
Importing 200 photos is now taking me 2 hours instead of a couple of minutes!
Can anyone help????
Not the solution you want to hear, but you will be happier in the long run if you use a card reader instead of connecting the camera to the computer. The transfers are much quicker and much less error prone.
Again, not that helpful, but I am seeing a lot of messages about problems importing from Canon 5D3 cameras.
Check your destination folders for typos in the names and also check with Finder or Explorer to make sure you have READ and WRITE access to the destination folders.
I went out and bought a card reader today - instant import.
THANK YOU !
