Has anyone been having issues with the new lightroom classic and importing photos? I'm trying to import images, and I click through about 15-20 at a time before it freezes on me for a few seconds. I have to wait, then keep going. Sometimes it crashes, and then keeps crashing repeatedly and I have to turn everything off then back on. I also can't import anything if I use an SD card plugged into an SD card reader, it keeps making lightroom crash. The only way I can import anything is if i plug my camera directly into my laptop. Its a brand new laptop, so I wonder if there are compatability issues possibly.
Thank you so much, those are all great tips! Unfortunately, I think it's a Lightroom issue and not an equipment issue.
My SD card reader is new, and works fine on a different computer.
The camera cord is also new and works fine on another computer, and is meant for charging and data transfer.
I'm a photographer, so over the last ~3 weeks I've tried this with at least 4 different SD cards and have had issues with every single one.
On the import, I'm selecting copy, not add. I even tried saving the images to my computer first, then importing into Lightroom that way, and it still was pausing and freezing on me.
Lightroom has also been not responding occasionally when I'm opening it up to import images. I have no idea why, I'm using a brand new laptop and have never had issues with Lightroom on anything else before so it makes me wonder if it's a comparability bug that Lightroom needs to update for my specific laptop.
