Importing files - different instances from the same SD card...

Latest version of LR Classic - part of Creative Cloud.

Computer:  MacBook Pro (2021)

 

The issue I'm having is when I put in my SD card, everything works fine.  I probably have three or four folders to import, but I want to do them one folder at a time.  I import one folder, alter some of the images and export them.  All is good to that point.

 

When I go back to do the next folder, I can't get back to the SD card.  I have to remove the card and reinsert it. 

 

Is that how it's supposed to work?

In the import dialog box there is a tick box that says 'Eject card after import'. You will need to uncheck that. It is on the left side under the Source panel.

I was just looking for something like that in the Preferences.  There should be a toggle there too.  

 

Thank you!

Glad that helped! Interesting that you thought that might be in preferences. That would make me 'set it and forget it' lol. Having it in the import screen is right in line with the task at hand to turn on and off while importing.

Understandable, but my usage is pretty limited.

I have Lightroom Classic and when I am importing photos from my sd card, LRC flashes something about "eject after import." I see here, that this is under discussion. However, on my version of LRC there is no check box next to or below SOURCE. Do you know if there is any other way to deactivate this. The last time I imported photos, my SD Card no longer had any images on it. I fear this will happen again. HELP : /.  Thank you, Kim

Insert your SD card again and look under Sources and make sure that in the center space you have Show Subfolders checked. Lightroom will not remove images from your card you can verify this by opening your card from the finder window.
