Is there an error message? If so, what is the exact wording? What is the exact version of Lightroom 5 that you are using? What is the camera model that you are using?
using Lightroom 5.7.1.
Im using a canon rebel T3i. (Used it plenty with raw- no problem).
- Says "could not copy file to the requested location" (when I try to import straight from card
and says when I try other ways (unchecked build smart preview box, and also leaving checked when trying to copy from a desktop folder, "the following files were not imported because they could not be read. (1)"
THis his is just annoying because I used these cards with this same camera not too long aho this year with no problem.
This morning I did decide to backup my catalog. Not sure if that has anything to do with it.
Mac operating system?
Try checking the write permissions of the intended destination.
May i know where are you trying to copy those images in.Change the location and then try to import again.
deepajgahlot - is there a place you would recommend? I'm trying for a collection set.
aand Keith - yes- how would I change the write permissions?
I don't know - I'm a Windows user, and it's an operating system issue, not a Lightroom issue.
Time to hit the search engines, I guess...
The folder permissions are changed using the OS tool Finder.
Since you're on Windows, you need to change the permissions on the receiving folder using Windows Explorer. Right-click on the folder, choose Properties, go to the Security tab and make sure your user has Full Control.
