Please reset the Lightroom Preferences and see how it works.
Look for Restore Preferences to default settings.
Let us know if it helps.
I had already uninstalled and reinstalled the program before seeing this post. I tried to follow the prompts to do factory settings but I believe that the reinstall caused everything to return to the factory settings anyway. Nothing has changed, I am still unable to import and edit photos.
I would still suggest you to rename Or delete the Preference file for Lightroom.
Are you not able to import the Image from the external Resource, have you tried importing the image from the desktop.
I figured it out. The import path had changed. Thanks for the help!
