Lightroom :: Importing From CF Card Reader?

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 :: 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.

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 :: V4 On Mac Stopped Importing From Memory Card

May 28, 2013

My Lightroom 4 on a Mac has stopped importing from a memory card. It used to do so, but now it hangs up and never actually imports the photos. If I save the photos from the card to a folder on my desktop, it works just fine. I have tried several different memory cards at different speeds, sizes, fullness, and it doesn't seem to matter. What can I do to go back to importing directly from the memory card?

Lightroom :: Importing Images From Memory Card?

May 2, 2013

When I import images from my memory card, the images in preview are colored but when rendered in LR4, they are automatically converted to black and white. I made sure that in the import panel that 'Import During Import'> Develop Settings> None.  My images show up in LR4 colored for an instance then convert to black and white.  This is the first time I have encountered this problem. Am I missing something.  I've checked my camera settings with nothing that I believe is the problem. I've been successful in using the other presets under 'Apply during Import' > Develop Settings, but using 'None' doesn't prevent the images from being converted to black and white in LR4. the same is true for importing to Bridge in PS-CS6. I get the same results of all the images being converted to black and white.

Lightroom :: Importing Few Pics From Card Or From Desktop

Nov 7, 2013

I am having such a hard time only importing a few pics from my Card or from my desktop. Any easy way to import them because I am watching the videos and the tutorial does not look like my computer screen and I am seeing something different than what the woman is showing on her screen even though she shows it two different ways. 

Also, do I need the full version in order to use the presets because when I click on them nothing happens.  I am using the trial right now.

Lightroom :: Just Installed LR5 Not Importing RAW Files From A Card

Mar 6, 2014

I just installed LR5 on a MAC.  I have pics to import from cards, one card loaded no problem, the next card brought up the images and when I go to import them I recieve a message saying "Some Import Operations Were not Performed."  giving me the following 2 errors (1) and (563)last night it was (1) and (504) and (505).  Seems like it is reading the images as it pulls them up, just not moving them.  I have reviewed everything from Permissions to loading the cards with no problem in LR4.

Lightroom :: 5 Not Importing Files From CF Card - Claims They Already Exist

Jul 2, 2013

Recently upgraded to LR5, and today noticed when importing a job that half the images I wanted to import were greyed out and hovering over one a pop-up stated "This photo has already been imported" - but that's ridiculous because I just took it and have NOT imported it yet.
A search on my system shows that the file 0L2A9857.CR2 does exist - But yesterday's job just won't import - the only way I can add it is to manually copy the files in Finder and then perform an Add import in LR5.
Surely it's not a setting issue, right? I'm using LR5 just as I used LR4, and even toggling the Don't Import Suspected Duplicates checkbox doesn't achieve anything.

Lightroom :: Importing Files From CF Card / Import Images On A Angle?

Aug 22, 2013

I have tested the card reader, another card (which also imports images on a angle), and importing images through Iphoto - incidentally importing images correctly. The images are fine viewed on the back of my D800. I'm thinking it must be the upgrade as I've never experienced this before.

Lightroom :: 4 Shows Previous Days Date When Importing From CF Card?

Dec 31, 2012

When I import photos from a CF card plugged into my reader on my PC, Lightroom 4 imports them into a folder showing the previous days date. I am puzzled as the time zones on the camera and PC are both set correctly, and it seems ok if I import directly from my camera but this is a lot slower, and this causes issues if I forget to do it from the camera. I have a Canon 5D mk3 with Firmware (v1.1.3), Windows 8 and Lightroom 4.3.

Photoshop :: Importing Photos From CF Card

Feb 19, 2008

I have been using Photoshop 5 with my Canon Digital Rebel and have had no problem uploading from the CF card. I recently purchased a Canon 40D. Photoshop will not allow me to upload from the CF card that is being used in the 40D.

Are there any settings changes that need to be made? Have not had problem before even when using Kodak and Fuji cameras.

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.

Lightroom :: Doesn't See Images On SD Card

Apr 30, 2013

Just come back from a photo trip and tried to import my images into Lightroom from my SD Card and Lightroom doesn't see them, all it see's are the images I took on Saturday.
Today I arrived at my location to photograph Pasque Flowers, I took 1 image then realised I hadn't deleted the images from Saturday so I used the 'Delete Images From Card' in my camera's menu and then proceeded to take a few hundred images. During the day I reviewed my images several times, so I know they were definitely saved to the SD Card.
When I got home I tried to import my images in to Lightroom and all Lightroom saw on the card were the images I took last Saturday.

I tried closing down Lightroom and opening it again - nothing, just the images from Saturday!

I tried using the SD Card reader on my iMac - again, just Saturday's images were found.

I then put my card back into my camera and all I could see were my Pasque flower images from today.
So it seems my camera see's todays images yet Lightroom only sees the images from Saturday I had deleted via my camera's menu at the start of today.
Lightroom 4.4
