I have a new MacPro and upgraded to Lightroom 5 and CC Photoshop. I am having a lot of problems importing from CF cards via a Hoodman USB 3.0 card reader. I have tried different card readers and different ports. I have some movies on the CF cards (SandDisk 32GB Extreme). In the past, with LR 4 and my old Mac, I had no problem importing movies or images.
Now, when I put a card in and pull up the Import dialogue, it takes forever for the previews to load and sometimes it just loads some of them and the rest are blank. I can import a few sometimes, or all sometimes, but LR ends up crashing or hanging if there are any movie files at all on my CF card. The same thing happens if I upload from my internal hard drive.
In addition, if I load a previous LR catalog, it hangs and crashes everytime I open it and click on a folder with .mov in it.
Through other forums, it was recommended that I try a card that has no .mov files on it and that seemed to work fine. Is there any solution to importing images on my cards that also have movie files on it? Is this a known bug?
Any help you have would be great as this has caused much frustration. I did not encounter this issue with movies on CF cards in Lightroom 4.
For the record, I have now tried Lightroom 4 and it still plays and imports movies just fine on my new Mac Pro. The problem is only with LR5.
