Difficulty importing NEF files from Nikon Nfc

I am using the latest version of Lightroom Classic and I am importing 21 photos from a Nikon Zfc camera. Lightroom will import 15 of the photos with no issues but 6 photos are not copied and I receive this error message - "photos will not be renamed as they are missing or not writeable".  You cannot later go and rename them as the 6 files are not actually there. I do see a preview. but that's all. The 15 that were imported can be renamed and edited

 

I have tried two card readers and I have the same problem. I even copied the files to the desktop and imported them to Lightroom but I still have the problem.  I can view and edit all the files in Nikon NX Studio.

 

I have tried SD two SDHX cards - San Disk Extreme Pro and Lexar Professional. All the same problem.

 

I have other Nikon cameras such as a Nikon Z8 and I have no problems importing and renaming photos. So, the problem is specific to the Nikon Zfc files. Lightroom Queen Forum response has been to suggest that the Nikon files are malformed. A first for me!

Any suggestions?

Please share one of these problem files on Dropbox or OneDrive or similar, and provide us with the link.

 

Also with regards to this: "photos will not be renamed as they are missing or not writeable", is this the EXACT word-for-word error message?

Yes, thiis is the exact message received when I import and rename photos. Some are renamed and some are not. Those that can't be renamed get this message.

I don't have any problem importing the file. I don't have a problem renaming the file.

 

As a wild guess, somehow this file has gotten locked accidentally (set to read-only) in your operating system. Check in your operating system. Or perhaps it could have been locked somehow in the camera.

I reset the camera and the problem has disappeared. I don't think th elock was put there by the operating system as only a few files were affected. I wish I know more what casued the problem but it's a mute issue now. Thanks for commenting.
