Lightroom not importing....again

Hello all,

A very short while ago I was here trying to find out why images were not loading into LRC. After much back and forth the problem was not solved but it started to work anyway. This time not only did LR not load images via my Card Reader, but, umlike last time, it would not load images via the camera directly which worked last time. I am very frustrated and wondered if anyone had any fresh ideas. I am using LRC v10 and Windows 10.

Thanks,

Richard

Have you checked to see if the card itself is the problem? Does a different card work properly?

Mssrs. Paige, Geoff and Golding,

Thank you so much for your suggestions. However, you gave me too much credit. By that I mean the first thing I should have done was to get out of LRC and then back in. You all supposed that, of course, I must have done that but....I hadn't. 

I finally did that and everything worked. Mea Culpa.

Richard Gold
