    Lightroom importing from a catalogue says files are missing


      I have been working on creating a master lightroom catalogue on my mac desktop by exporting files as catalogues from my macbook to the backup drive(WD) which holds the photographs for both computers.  I have finished exporting and have been importing as a catalogue to my mac desktop with no problem, but now it has starting saying .....

      No matter what boxes are checked or unchecked it will not allow me to import.  Also the files are not missing, they are still in the same folder.  I tried to re-export from my macbook,restart lightroom multiple times,  restart the computer(desktop), and double checked that the pathway is the same as the other catalogues I have already successfully imported to the master catalogue.  I cannot even move on to a new catalogue because every catalogue I try now says the files are missing.  I'm at a loss!!
