    New iMac can't open catalog on external HD

    melewen

      I just got a new iMac and am looking forward to doing most or all of my post-processing on its gigundo screen. I keep my entire LR catalog on an external HD, along with all of my photos. No problems at all reading the catalog on my Macbook Pro. I tried opening the catalog on my iMac and it keeps giving me errors: can't open, isn't writable, not sure why but we can't open this, etc.

       

      I've verified that each parent folder has Read & Write access. I've deleted any lrcat lock files. I optimized the catalog on my Macbook Pro.

       

      What can I do? I've tried getting in touch with Adobe but their UX kind of just forcibly directs me here and say good luck!
