Creative Cloud member (latest Lightroom versions)
I am using Sandisk Extremem Pro Cards with the Sandisk USB 3.0 reader. Importing to networked drive. Been doing this since I've started using Lightroom over a year ago and no problems... but lately...
Import is VERY slow. BUT...
When I drag and drop folder from CF card to Desktop I'm getting super fast (as expected) speeds. Then, I can import from the desktop to Lightroom (target is still networked drive) and imports are NORMAL (fast as they should be).
Not sure what's happening but I can no longer import directly from CF card to target drive as quickly as I used to. But importing form desktop to target drive is fine. And to reiterate, importing from CF card to desktop works properly as well.
Please turn off the Graphics Processor from the Lightroom preferences.
Go to Lightroom Preferences from the Edit menu
Click on Performance tab
Uncheck the Graphics Processor
Restart Lightroom and try import
Let us know if that helps.
Well, we never suggest to involve the network drive or NAS when using the Lightroom, however if it was working fine then there's must have something changed to permissions or access, you can try and change the destination to some other folder on the same network drive and see if that makes any differences.
