"cannot read files" usually means that the destination directory does not have WRITE permission
To fix, you need to:
- Determine the exact destination directory specified in the Lightroom Import dialog box (it's on the right, under Destination)
- Change the permissions on thjis exact directory to WRITE permission
Alternatively, choose a different directory to import your photos into that does have WRITE permission
May I know the version of Lightroom?
Could you please set the import destination to your desktop and then try to import.
Changing the destination did it. Thank you.
Thank you for your help. I changed the destination folder and all was well. For the record I was using Lightroom 6.3 with El Capitan as my operating system on the Mac.
Glad to know its working now.
