@I see my images in my camera and when I download them to the Desktop, however when I go to import them into Lightroom, the import never really gets going and it says there are no photos to import. They do however I am able to import them into Photoshop. What is the deal?
You don't Import images in Photoshop. You do Open images in PS.
What image format are they, JPG or RAW files. If RAW what camera are they from? What exact version of LR are you using?
