I haven't been able to import any photos into lightroom whenever I try the message appears: "A file could not be copied to the destination folder because it is not edit-enabled." What do I do to get import?
You need to share much more information.
- OS and version
- LrC version
- Are you importing from a card or directly from camera
- Using copy, where is the target of the photo
- Source and format of the photos
... out of the blue ... the user you are working with does not have write/access privileges at the target location.
Most likely, you have selected a Destination Folder where you do not have write permission in your operating system.
Either change to a different folder, or change the permissions on the Destination Folder so it has write permission.
Was that the exact statement?
Was it mote like
is not writable
