I recently upgraded to a camera where I can use a CF card, I also purchased a card reader which seems to work just fine. I went through my usual workflow from camera to computer
1. plug in my card and open lightroom (5.7.1)
2. choose the files(RAW) I would like to import
some of them by this point are already pixelated and look like they are scratched up and not reading correctly.
3. i then hit import and it automatically converts to DNG.. which is correct
4. and then by the time hey have been converted and imported I am left with boxes with every single colour and no image, just a box of colours
I feel like somehow I am not up to date because it's almost like my computer is unable to fully read the full file. I have a macbook pro which is about 4 years old. I have been shooting with a crop sensor 70d which has had no problems uploading. Since I just very recently switched to a full farm camera with a CF compact flash disc I haven't been able to figure it out. If this sounds like something that is fixable I would loooove to hear about it. Thanks
I'd be willing to bet you have a bad card-reader. What happens if you import the photos using a cable to the camera instead of the card reader? Does the problem go away?
