    File names arbitrarily changed during Import - why?


      Last night as I improted several hundred images from a day of scanning Kodachrome transparencies into 160-180 mb uncompressed digital files, each with its own very specific file name, LR went from importing using the file name I had created to arbitrarily making the file names "untitled-(sequential number).tif". I have imported thousands of digital files from my scanning efforts to lightroom with no change or degradition of file names until this event.


      What is more, when I look at the Orignal filename line in Metadata, all I see is the "untitled-(#)" and there is no "original Filename" so it was clearly improted using the "untitled (#)" file name.

      Does anyone have any idea what might have happened and why?
