I use LR3 and have just upgraded to OS X Lion. When importing images from CF card, server mounted volumes are not displayed as an import destination. Drives are mounted and are visible when in the Library module, but not visible when importing. This was not the case under Snow Leopard.

I can import the images to a locally attached drive then drag to the network volume in Library, but this requires adequate space on local drive and takes time to carry out the process.

Yes, I have the same problem. Previously I stored all my pics on a network drive and now, after upgrading to Lion, Lightroom refuses to provide the AFP volume in the main library window or the import dialog. It will however retrieve images that previously existed in the catalog.

In process with having a Lightroom team member in here to help determine a root cause. Thanks for your patience.

We're looking into this. Here is a workaround:

When in the import dialog, click on the "Select a Source" menu in the upper left (just above the Source panel). Choose "Other Source" and navigate to the desired folder on your network volume. Note that the volume will still not display in the Sources panel, but you will see the thumbnails for your images and they will import properly.

Similarly, you can navigate to a network volume for destination by clicking the Destination menu (upper right, above the File Handling panel) and selecting, "Other Destination".

Thanks for the response and the workaround. Also found when importing, if I want to import to a new folder, I can right click on destination, select new folder, then navigate to network volume, so not end of the world, but a little inelegant. Look forward to seeing the update.

I am having the same issue. I did notice that there is a funny blue highlight around the source and destination drive icons.
