Is this problem started after the Mac OS update Or it just stopped working.
You can try and reset the Lightroom preferences back to default.
The preferences file is the "com.adobe.Lightroom3.plist" file, located in [user name]/Library/Preferences, rename the file to "com.adobe.Lightroom3.plist.old"
Restart Lightroom and try using your camera with it.
Let us know if that helps.
Thanks for the response Mohit.
Yes, this is my fist import since updating to El Capitan
I looked in the folder and didn't see it there (there are similar file titles for other Adobe apps). I searched my computer for the file name and it's not anywhere to be found.
What else can I try? I attempted another import this morning without success.
What is the exact error message you are getting?
No error message, Lightroom acts as if the camera wasn't there; it used to open the import window as soon as the camera connected. Aple's "Photos" and Dropbox both recognize that a camera has connected, but I want to be able to connect directly to Lightroom.

In Lightroom, go to Preferences dialog > General tab > Show import dialog
There may be some "auto play" settings at the OS level you need to adjust.
Personally, the first thing I do on any new computer I get is turn off all the "auto play" junk.
Thanks for the excellent suggestions ManiacJoe. The "show import dialogue" is checked and while I looked at the System Prefs, the problem shouldn't be there as the camera is recognized by the Apple Photo App. Ya it drives me nutz when I plug a camera in and apps that I don't want start up. This is not a new comp, I just updated to the latest OS. This has been the only issue.
