Disappeared from the Import window? Or disappeared from the folder after import?
Are these JPG or RAW? What version of Lightroom (we need the version NUMBER and not words like "up-to-date")?
Sorry! Lightroom Classic 7.3.1 release
Camera raw 10.3
Mac version 10.13.5
All images are RAW
Oops, the images disappear in the import dialog. I click on import from
library, the images appear and then disappear immediately before I’m able
to complete the process.

From what you describe, you're importing the images twice, once to move them from the SD card to the WD HD, then again from the WD HD (to somewhere else or why?) and the same catalog is pointed to both times, so the second import would duplicate the images in the catalog and they're being removed from the import grid to keep that from happening. The way LR is designed to work, you only need to import them once, from the SD card to their final location.
What's not clear is what the two imports are trying to accomplish. If you explain in more detail what you're doing, maybe we can suggest a different way that doesn't involve importing twice.
All I’m doing is getting them into LR for processing. My process for this
was moving photos from the SD card to an existing folder on the WD. Then on
to LR, library, import from WD. And that’s where it ended. I just did an
import from a new folder (SS to WD, library import from WD) and all was
well. I guess no more adding photos to an existing WD folder?
OK, what happens if you click on All Photos?
Please describe your process in finer detail. Be specific as to the program (Explorer/Finder or LR) used with each step, and be specific as to the source and destination folders you are moving or copying photos between at each step, and whenever you are using LR Import, please be specific as to the Import type: Copy as DNG or Copy or Add.
Made up examples of specific folder names I'm asking for would be something like E:\DCIM\100CANON on an SD card, or G:\Photos\2018-06-15_RiverRafting as the final destination of the photos on the WD. There should be two folder names in each copy or import step you do, one as the source and one as the destination, UNLESS you're doing an Add type of import, then there's just one folder as the source.
