I am no longer able to import photos into LrC. I have the latest version of LrC and I am running Big Sur v 11.5. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it and still no luck.

You've got everything set in System Preferences for full disk access for Lightroom Classic?

For starters, I see the source is apparently an external hard drive, the destination is the Desktop on your computer, and you have selected the import method Copy.

 

Why?

 

Where do you want the photo's? Where they already are, or for some reason your desktop?

I see that you are new in the community. It is very common for new members to attach screenshots. That irritates many old salts in the community. Many of us absolutely refuse to open them. It is a trust issue.

 

I highly recommend that you post the screenshot via Insert Photo button,

an old image if this follows, a bit out if dare:

I have the latest version of LrC

That is also a new member habit that most members have an issue with. Latest Version, has turned out to be false in the past. Lease state exact Adobe program name and version.

Also, from your screenshot, on the right, Destination, expand that, what does it show? Is the destination viable? What worked in previous import may have changed, and LrC could be getting that wrong.

I am having the same issue!

This happened after I updated to the latest version yesterday.

My images no longer show up to import. I've tried restarting, opening new catelogs, and nothing has worked. 

Help appreciated! (Screenshot Attached)

 

Thanks.
