    Lightroom CC Will Not Import From External Media or Drives




      Running Lightroom CC on OS X 10.10.5, and have also run into a problem (which I have seen others to have similar issues) where Lightroom 'refuses' to Import any photo files from an External SD Card or drive of any sort


      I can go through the "Import Photos and Video..." menu, select the Photos and Destination, but once I click "Import X Photos", I am left with a blank screen with the text "Importing Photos..." forever.  No photos appear, nothing imports. Zilch.   I can't manually cancel the Import at this point either -- Lightroom thinks the operation is in progress, but it isn't.


      Note however, if I manually move the files using OS X FInder to my Desktop (as an example), Lightroom can successfully Import them from there!  So this is limited to any external devices for my case... A huge pain in the butt to have to manually move files, to then have Lightroom import and move them again. 


      I've attempted to repair permissions (all okay), deselected GPU options etc, to no avail.  


      Has there been any successfull soluitions to this issue?
