I can't import my images into Lightroom 4.  What's the problem?

Advertisement

When I insert a CF card into my reader, thumbnails of my images appear in the organizer.  When I click on "Import", the following message appears: "The following files were not imported because they could not be read."  I didn't have this problem with versions 2 or 3 of Lightroom.  Is there a solution for this problem?

Take my apologize for the delay doceddy. This issue is 90 percent permissions related. But one thing is confusing in this. If it would be permission issue it should not affect for example the desktop folder. .
Testing:
1 / Create a floder TEST on the desktop.
2/ Use the transfer method which you normally to download the rwas from your cam. Put few raws into the TEST folder.
3/ Run Lightroom and try to import those in TEST.
4/ If it does not work: highlight the test folder - right click - properties - check if there is read only attribute.
5/ If it so - try to put the blue marker from this box away and click apply.
6/ After this close the dialogue (the operation will run some small time). Then do it again if your system allowed you to apply the change. So second time should be the attribut away. If it is start Lightroom and try to import again from TEST.
7/ Give me some feedback then please - I will suggest you some other steps if it does not work.
Good Luck
