It sounds like you used the "ADD" function in the import module. LrC is looking for the files on the memory card, thus, files not found.

You need to use the "COPY" option at the top middle of the Import screen and then in the right hand column of the Import screen specify which folder you want the image files copied to.

Thanks!  You're correct. I was using Lightroom mobile and forgot to specify in LRc. I tried to add more pics, but now when I click on Nikon Z9 as source, it says no,photos found, despite there being several on the memory card. Any ideas?  Thanks for your help.

You need to copy the photos to somewhere on a hard disk (using your operating system) and then in Lightroom Classic, reconnect the photos to their new location on your hard disk. See: www.computer-darkroom.com/lr2_find_folder/find-folder.htm
