hi there

 

i have downloaded 8k photos from icloud, placed them in an external hard drive which i use for storing my photos, 

 

i have been attempting to import them to lightroom and it always stalls at the 'importing photos' phase, to then the ' no photos were found to import ' phase

 

im guessing because the destination and the source are the same?  the photos are not in the lightroom catalog needing to be found, i have 8 folders of 1k photos each im attempting to import into batches, and its not able to do so, ive tried selecting the destination as ' copy' ' move '  ;add' and none of them seem to work 

 

nothing seems to work so here i am, really thankful for your help

 

John

Try doing an import without the video files — move them to some other folder and then import from the folder with no videos. At one time, lots of videos could cause similar problems.
