Suddenly unable to import photos to LR on my mac. SanDisk from OMD and Canon 5D.
Please explain more about what happens, and why you can't perform the import. Provide DETAILS! If there is an error message, please quote the complete exact unedited word-for-word error message.
So sorry I thought I had lost this query so started another. It is incomplete.
I think I have the solution. The photos were seen in thumbnails but LR could not 'read' them, and therefore could not import them. I have spent half a day on this!
Thanks for attempting to come to my rescue, and sorry to waste your time xx
Oh!! I think this is the solution! Odd as I haven't changed anything. I think it is the destination folder that is at fault.
Thank you SO much
If you are getting the message that the files "could not be read", this is a permissions problem. You need to:
- In Lightroom, determine what the Destination folder is — go to the Import dialog, and on the right hand side, this is shown under the word Destination
- In your operating system, go to this exact folder and then change the permissions to WRITE permission —OR— change this folder in Lightroom to some other folder that already has WRITE permission
