          Hi Earl,

          What are you trying to import the images from?

          Cheers

            Repair the catalog in which you are importing the images.You can repair the catalog by going to Filr->Catalog->Repair.
            Or try making a new catalog and then importing the images.

                Thanks Jim for pointing this out.
                Is is possible to open the catalog database in MSACCESS and then perform some repair operation from there?

                  If he has MS Access or OpenOffice Base, this would certainly be an
                  option. It is a matter of his experience. I'm in the process of creating
                  some instructions on how to work with this, but unfortunately, this is
                  more of a hobby for me... in other words, I still have to put bread on
                  the table in my "real job". :)

                    I am getting the error message "The ODBC data source returned the following error; (internal error:data not found)" when I try to import photos.

                    I can view the photos (and tags) I have moved, but cannot add to that collection.

                    I have seen in these forums (below)solution is to Remove Windows XP service pack 2, and re-install it. BUT I think I can only remove Serice Pack 3 from my version of Windows.

                    Will the fix work by removing and re-installing SP3? Or is there a better fix? HELP!

                    I am really keen to get a FIX for this as my wife needs access to the photos for her artwork.

                    I have just moved about 10,000 pictures (in Adobe Photoshop Album Starter edition) from an old PC (failing hard drive) to a new one.

                    Please try reinstalling the Service Pack 2 according to the instructions in this Adobe techdoc:

                    http://www.adobe.com/support/techdocs/331094.html

                    The document is written for PSElements 3, but we have reason to believe it also applies to PSAlbum (SE).

                    Will the fix work by removing and re-installin SP3?

                      Hi Johnathan,

                      I don't know if that is actually the problem. Can you describe for me
                      precisely the steps you are carrying out and I'll see if I can help out.
                      I'm not encountering any problems and am using the same OS, but it might
                      be WHAT you are doing.

                      Did you try for example instead to do a backup and restore or just a
                      copy and paste when you moved the images and application.

                      Cheers
