    Lightroom 6.6 import hanging SOMETIMES on OS X 10.11.6

    MurrayElliot Level 1

      Lately I've been having issues with Lightroom import from SD card containing NIkon Raw files.

      What happens is this:

      1) Lightroom starts up normally.

      2) I click on LIbrary - ok so far

      3) I click on import, lightroom recognises the card and starts to show thumbnails but only gets as far as showing grey boxes, spinning beach ball appears. General performance goes down the toilet.

      4) I get fed up waiting, I force-close lightroom

      5) I repeat from 1) until it works normally, which is often after the 2nd or 3rd try.


      Any advice on what lightroom is trying to do and why restarting the application appears to 'fix' it (eventually)?


      It's happening almost every time I use it now and it's driving me slightly insane.
