    Importing is EXTREMELY SLOW

      I've been having a problem with importing files for a while now.  I've tried everything I can think of and nothing has helped. 


      It doesn't matter if I'm importing from a card or directly from files on my hard drive.  I can copy files from my fast CF and XQD cards to my SSD hard drive or external USB 3 drives very fast, but getting them into a new lightroom catalog takes FOREVER.  I'm talking over an hour for a wedding.  I can export faster than I can import.  And I'm not talking about previews either.


      I've reinstalled, I've cleared preferences, I've cleared cache.  Nothing.  Still extremely slow.


      My catalogs are on a SSD drive, my cache is on a SSD drive. Both have plenty of space left.  Any ideas?
