I just received my refurbished MacBook Pro today. I have installed Lightroom and have unsuccessfully tried to import photos. When I try, I get this:
"Some operations were not performed. Could not move a file to the requested location."
Then it lists ALL the photos. I've tried several things:
1. I've closed Lightroom, deleted the Preference file, then rebooted. No luck.
2. Import from the SD Card to a folder on my Mac.
3. Moved all the photos from the card to a folder on my desktop. Then tried to import. Same thing.
4. Copy as DNG. Nope.
5. Move and Add in the Import panel. Uh-uh.
6. I even tried to import the photos from the folder on my Desktop to an external hard drive. Same error.
7. I also updated OS X El Capitan.
I can't figure out what's wrong. Can anyone help?
I think I have it figured out! I made a new folder to import the photos into and it worked. I'm thinking it may have something to do with permissions?
Sounds like it probably was a permissions issue. The other thing you can do is to manually copy your images to the intended location first, then use Import 'Add' not 'Copy' when importing. You won't get the 'could not move a file...' message because Lightroom isn't moving or copying anything that way.
