I have to work on a recent job so PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help!!!!
Ok, where are you importing to and from what??
When does the waiting icon appear???
You have changed nothing??
There are won't be many people using Lightroom 3.... so responses may take time. Sorry..
I have tried importing directly from my memory card as well as my computer hard drive into my lightroom catalogue...both with the same results. Between 2-5 seconds, before I can even choose photos to import, the waiting icon appears and the program freezes. I have not done anything different and even deleted most of the photos in that catalogue. I do notice as that there are a lot of "installer" items along the left side. Don't know why or if that has anything to do with this problem.
Do you think upgrading to lightroom 6 would solve the problem?
Thanks sooooo much for helping!
I just solved the problem....My mac had updated the night before to a version that is not compatible with my older version of lightroom. Only way to fix the situation is to purchase the upgrade.
