Hello, everytime I plug in my external hard drive to my laptop, Lightroom Classic starts up and want to import my photos. The curious thing is that I haven't set it up.

So my question is: How can I disable the auto-start-up everytime I plug in a hard drive?

 

Maybe anyone has a solution. 🙂

Hi there,

 

We're sorry about the trouble with Lightroom Classic. You can try disabling the option to Show import dialog when a memory card is detected by going to the Preferences for Lightroom Classic, then General. Once done, quit and relaunch Lightroom Classic to check if that helps.

I tried the 'fix' above. It was checked.  I unchecked it and restarted Lightroom.  I even rebooted my computer, but Lightroom Classic is still trying to import files whenever I plug in an external drive.  It doen't do it on my other laptop.

 

I recently updated my OS drive to a larger drive.  I cloned the old drive to the new drive and then installed the new drive into the computer.  Would that have anything to do with it.  I can still use PS and LrC, it's just a pain having LrC startup when I plug an external drive in.

Should I reinstall my LrC?

If you're on Windows, disable Autoplay in settings. That should stop it.

I imagine there's a similar setting on Macs.
