My LR has been stable for months. Suddenly, when I click on "import photos and videos" I get a dreaded "adobe photoshop lightroom has stopped working" error message and then LR shuts down. I have cold booted, removed the USB card reader, and changed catalogs. Nothing works.
Any ideas? If this has already been reported, please direct me to the discussion.
I'm running LR 6.0 on Windows 10, 64 bit.
I would suggest you to first update Lightroom to the latest version 6.6.1: Keep your Lightroom version up to date
Also, if updating Lightroom does not help, please share the crash log: Photoshop Elements Editor Help | How to Find Crash Logs on Windows
It was conflicting USB devices. I unplugged my phone and an iPod and everything worked. I'm surprised this issue isn't documented.. I found the fix in a string about LR 4 in another support board.
My original Galaxy S used to mess things up this way so I always had to unplug it when I wanted to use another USB drive.
