Lightroom :: CF Card Reader For Photo Import Does Not Show?

Mar 19, 2012

In trying to import photos, first form a DVD and also from a CF card reader. The error message on my DVD says that there is an initialization error (OK, OK , the DVD with photos was created on another laptop, running on Windows Vista, so it may be a Read Only file). Aside from that, however, my CF card with photos does not even show up on LR3.
I have gone to System Preferences and changed the way I want CDs and DVDs to show. In both cases I changed it to "Open in LR3". Is that wrong?
Here is a Screen shot of LR3 Library when  tryingn to import photos. No (CF card) drive is shown.

Lightroom :: Unusable Import In LR4 And LR3 From Card Reader

Mar 11, 2012

Just upgraded my primary catalog to LR4. The LR3 import problem that started in ~3.3 or 3.4 has not gone away. Import effectively hangs the app.
I have a 6 proc AMD 1055T, Win7x64, w/ 16GB ram, an ATI 5770HD video card driving two monis, one 27" and one 24", and a ton of disk space (4 hd: c 384 free of 931, x: 191 f of 1.36TB, y: 1.55TB f of 2.72TB, z: 1.4TB f of 2.72TB). Free space isn't the issue. I usually do have several network shares connected; disconnecting them and removing all optical media makes no difference. My primary catalog has ~30,000 images When I try to import, the dialog itself takes up to a minute to open.

Eventually, the select source prompt appears; clicking on my usb2 card reader causes the dialog to disappear for a long time, sometimes > 2 minutes. The busy icon is displayed.If I'm super patient, the import disalog will open, but can take many minutes (3-5) to display, and once displayed, the busy icon remains and the dialog is not interactive for another long period, for example, right now, it's been > 10 mins on the 8GB card I'm trying to import from, import dialog visibility comes and goes, interacting with the scroll bar works, but so far I've only been able to scroll about half way thru the picture previews
This is obviously unusable. I've perverted my workflow at this point to be:

Copy images to temp folder in pictures hierarchy Sync temp folder, adding new images, without showing the import dialog Then, in Library view, I copy the new pictures to their final dest in my pictures folder hierarchy.
I just converted the catalog, so presumably it's optimized (optimizing made no difference in lr3.6 perf). As I said, this perf problem started in 3.3 or 3.4. ABout the only improvement I see is that I was able to successfully cancel the import; in 3.6 the app just stayed hung.

Mar 17, 2013

I just purchased an imac and lr4.  I've plugged in my SanDisk card reader and loaded my cf card.  lr4 says the files were not imported because they could not be read.  The files are Nikon NEF raw.  What do I need to do to import them?  According to Adobe's web site lr4 comes with Nikon D2X raw format already included.

Lightroom :: Import From Reader

Nov 5, 2011

I import from my card reader directly to a folder on my hard drive and into LR as DNG files.  The next time I try to import, some of the files I previously imported are still checked as well as the new ones on the card.  If I try to import the ones I had previously added, they are imported again although I have the "Don't import suspected duplicates" box checked. I have to unchecked all the files and then recheck the new ones.

I use my card reader to download images. In PSE11 how can I be selective in the number of images I download at any one time. Say there are 200 images on the card & only want to download the last 20. How do I avoid downloading all 200 images & then having to delete the 180 I had already previously downloaded?

Lightroom :: Sandisk CF Card Won't Show Up On Desktop?

Dec 26, 2012

I was downloading some images from a Sandisk Extreme 111 CF 4Gb card (from a Canon 5d) and suddendly the card disappeared. At first I saw the previews in the LR "Import" dialog, but some quirk in the reader, or USB connection, caused the card to unmount. After that it won't mount or appear on the desktop.
Just to check, I put the CF card back in the camera and the first thing I got was a message sayin "Card not formatted".... even though I was shooting with it a few minutes earlier...

Lightroom :: How To Import Photos From SD Card Into LR4

Nov 11, 2013

I am having issues importing photos from my SD card into LR4. I have 319 pictures on my SD card and LR is only recognizing 283 of them.  In the Library module, I can see the pics that LR is not recognizing but they are greyed out. When I put my mouse over the picture it says "This photo has already been imported" but I never imported it. I did format my memory card right before my shoot if that makes a difference. I am using a MacBook Pro with Mac OS X Version 10.6.8.  I have tried to restart my computer, restart LR, eject the SD card then put it back in but it's still not working. I attached a screen shot

Lightroom :: 4.1 - How To Import Photos From SD Card

Sep 12, 2012

Trying to import some photos from an SD card that has worked in the past. First, I get an error "The following files could not be imported because they could not be read" with a list of all files. This includes files I've successfully imported into LR in the past (tried them as a test, since they didn't get caught by the "new" filter).
So I copied all the images to my HD and tried importing from there, and got a different error: "Could not copy a file to the requested location" for all files.
Settings: "Copy as DNG", "Into Subfolder: By date: 2012/YYYY-MM-DD"
I'm running OSX 10.7.4 and Lightroom 4.1 The files are a mix of JPG, CR2, and MOV

Lightroom :: How To Import NEF Files From SD Card

Jan 9, 2013

I have been using Lighroom4.3 for nearly a year now with no problems. All of a sudden, it refuses to import any of my NEF files from my SD card. I have tried all my SD cards to no avail. In the import window the files appear as thumbnails, but when I ask to import I get the message 'Files were not imported because they could not be read (3)'
My camera is a Nikon D3000.

Lightroom :: Can't Import Directly From XQD Card

Sep 3, 2012

I can't import directly from an XQD card into Lightroom on my laptop (Windows 7). The images appear in the import window, but I get the following message when trying to import: "The following files were not imported because they could not be read."  I can move the files over to the hard disk where Lightroom can import them but only by using the "Add" function. This precludes my adding the date to the file name and converting the files to DNG.   The funny thing is I can import them into my desktop, but it has less memory and an older processor which during the import often exceeds the memory capabilities and corrupts the image file.

Lightroom :: How To Import Images From CF Card

Jan 15, 2014

I am a Canon shooter and a seasoned Lightroom user.  About a month ago my Mac stopped allowing me to import images from my CF card into Lightroom.  I have worked with Mac and Adobe to no avail.  At this point I know that my Mac can see the card and will me allow me to download images into iPhoto.  It will generate thumbnails in Lightroom, but will tell me that it's unable to read the images when I try a complete import.  If I switch users on my Mac to a dummy user, I am able to import the same images off my CF card. To my knowledge, I didn't changed any settings, at least not intentionally.

Lightroom :: Import RAW Files Directly From CF Card

Jan 4, 2013

If I use LR to import the RAW files directly from a CF card, there are preview images (but I don't know how to import and save to a different HDD yet so I am still transferring files with Nikon Transfer NX)), but if I use Nikon Transfer to move the NEFs to the HDD, LR reports that it can't read the RAW files.  I am using the same NEF format as what I use with ny Nikon D300 (14 bit, uncompressed) and LR will read those files.
