Every time I try to import a file, I get the following error:
Could not copy a file to the requested location. (1)
I uninstalled, then reinstalled Lightroom, but the error persists. I have not imported these files before.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks,
You need to use your operating system, Windows Explorer or Mac Finder and check you have read and write permissions for the sub folder underlined.
Thank you for the advice DdeGannes. I honestly don't know Windows 7 that well, after having just "upgraded" from XP. However, it appears that I have write access, though I wonder why Lightroom would want to copy a file to the same folder from which it came (I assumed it would have created its own work folder during installation). Anyway, I figured that it made sense to have a work folder anyway, so I created one and directed the import there, and things seem to be working now. I still wonder why Lightroom worked fine one day, then encountered this problem the next. At least it is working now. Thanks again!
