When I try to import, only a few photos are loaded at a time. Then I get a message that says, "unwritable folder" with the number of photos not loaded.
I went to folder permissions and unlocked folders. That is not the problem.
I chose different options in loading, such as, "load as dng, copy, move, add" None work better than another. That is not the problem.
I have not found this scenario in the forums:
When I attach the camera, Lightroom displays the 'import' button. I click that. I have tried several things here.
1) Move quickly. That is, I click import before the preview images appear. It is too quick. No images will download.
2) Wait for preview images to appear. Images that show a preview will download.
3) Wait for all of the images to get a preview. (This worked for me a month ago). When I do this, Lightroom stops recognizing my camera, and says, "please select a source". I need to start over now. So I move more quickly. See Thing 1 and 2 to see the other options.
Here is the problem: If I wait too long, Lightroom no longer recognizes my camera and I need to start over. If I wait for the first few images to get a preview, I get only 2, or up to 15 images.
I just returned from a week long trip with quite a few images. I have spend 4 hours and only 125 images are loaded.
Please help me!
This is one of the reasons many people use card readers instead of directly connecting the camera to the computer. Ultimately, you will be much happier with a card reader.
