I'm trying to import pictures into Lightroom and I keep getting "The following files were not imported because the could not be read." at first I thought that might mean my SD card was corrupted, but I can import my photos into "photos" on my mac just fine. How do I fix this??
This message indicates that you are trying to copy /move files to a Destination Folder for which you do not have full read and write permissions. Check the Destination location in the import dialog (right side) and use your operating system to adjust the permissions or change the destination location.
The common problem is that "...could not be read." really means- "....could not find a location destination to copy the files into."
Read similar thread at- Lightroom 6.6 cannot read Raw (Nef) file.
It's all about having a destination folder that you have selected that is available and has full 'Read AND write' privileges.
