I am trying to import photos into Lightroom Classic, but it will only get through about one or two photos until it comes up saying that it can't import the rest because the destination file is not writable. I am using the same external hard drive that I was before when I didn't have this issue, so I don't know what changed. There is still plenty of space left on the hard drive. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Perhaps the Destination folder has accidentally changed to point to some location that was not what you were using before. Please double check to make sure this hasn't happened.
Perhaps the Destination folder has accidentally changed to have only write permission. Please double check to make sure this hasn't happened.
The destination folder has not changed. I have given the drive all permissions and it still didn't work.
Giving the drive all permissions is not sufficient. You have to give the exact Destination FOLDER the proper permissions.
It does not give me the option to give the drive, or the folder write permissions. The only options are read, change, or full control.
Full control includes write permission
One oddity from the past, should have been fixed, but???
Is LrC correctly identifying that the issue is with the destination, when it is actually with the source. As in a SD card with the write protect tab on, or with files protected in camera?
Two things to try
Also, are you placing that SD card in a card reader? Or is this via USB to/from camera? If the latter, try the former.
Yes I am using a card reader and that has full control permissions as well.
