So I purchased LR5 for my iMac about 4 months ago. I've imported and edited several photoshoots the past months. Now, suddenly, I get an error message when trying to import photos from my card. It says "files couldn't be read...339" It shows previews of all the images and I've successfully imported the same images from the same card into Photos and Aperture. I've tried reformatting the card in the camera, deleting the preferences files, and messing with the import settings...nothing has helped...suggestions?
That "could not be read" message usually indicates that your destination folder doesn't have the write permission. Checked the permissions for the folder and make sure you have both read and write permissions.
Thanks Jim. I checked the settings and they said read and write...but I just made a whole new folder and now they are importing :-) Thanks!
