Importing - copying NEFs from the SD to a 2TB external drive

I've just tried to replicate the error. This time I got an initial error message saying that Lr planned on using the internal drive. I used the top right corner of the import dialogue to say "Use this drive." (the one that was apparently unavaillable.) Last night this was giving me a message saying that the drive was unavailable and the files were not imported. This time it'd working...
