Hi, This happens on occasion, I'm currently suffering a very slow import from SD Card. I cant recall how I remedied it last time, and I cant really put my finger on what causes it, but I have a shoot tomorrow where I'll expect 400-500 images and I'm trying to get ahead of the frustration of waiting for the slow import I am currently experiences.
Workflow wise, I'm using a BenQ SW2700PT monitor, where I am inserting Lexar Pro 64 GB SD card into the reader. I keep my Catalogue on internal "D" drive which is 35% free space , while the imported files are simultaneously saved to 2 2TB WD passport drives.
I have already attmpted the "Lightroom Classic CC 7 Preferences.agprefs.old" work around with no success.
My catalogue is backed up daily (and I presume optimized).
I cant recall the last time if this happened if it was due to a Windows or Norton AV update. Anyway, I'm just looking for a suggestion to point me to a speedier import..

First up, a workaround. Outside of LrC, using your OS File Manager, copy the images from the SD card to your desired folder. Then in LrC, Import them, selecting ADD.
After your suggestions, I've tested a bit and it appears the SD card reader on my monitor is the bottleneck. It may be damaged. Thanks for your help.
I have no reference to support a wild hunch. Probably rarely occurs. Do you have an Android device connected to your computer?
No Android device connected.

Probably nothing to do with Import, probably not an issue outside of the Develop Module, but your GPU driver needs updating
In the import dialog, check what previews you are creating, check if you are making extra copy's, check what presets you are applying.
Oh, and verify that the destination is correct.
Minimal previews. I am making an extra copy - It's typically not been an issue when things are "working right".
Thanks for throwing things out there for consideration.
Oh, and is Face Detection, and Address Lookup, paused? If on, they can grind things down to a halt.
All that is turned off.

My first thought is card malfunction or card reader malfunction.
