Could you please check and let me know if you have Lightroom CC 2015.5 installed on your computer?
Also please try the following steps:
- Go to Lightroom > Preferences.
- Also please Go to the Preferences > Performance Tab, and uncheck "Use Graphics Processor "
- Restart Lightroom and see if it works.
Yes, running 2015.5 and unfortunately unchecking use graphics processor doesn't help, still the same problem.
It won't even show me all the photos on the sd card to upload, it will show some thumbnails and then the rest just grey squares or preview not available.
Could you copy the images from the card to a folder on the desktop and then try to import the images in Lightroom and see if you are able to view the thumbnails or not.
Importing from desktop appeared to work although it stopped responding a few times before letting me import
Does the application goes " Not responding"?
And what is the file format of the images that you are trying to import in Lightroom, also are there any video files as well?
Yes, freezes and eventually goes not responding. Images are RAW and no video.
Is it possible for you to create a new catalog, and then try to import the images from desktop.
Yes, importing from desktop works
Did it work in the newer catalog, or in the older catalog?
