Hi,

I have a problem with importing JPG + DNG files form my DJI drone. The most files are not visible in the import box in Lightroom Classic.

Now I have to import them via Bridge (that's no problem) and then re-import them from that folder into Lightroom. Is this a known problem? DJI couldn't help me further.

As a photographer it's the first time I have this issue with Lightroom. Whem inporting my RAW files form my Nikon camera's, that's no problem. 

 

NB: by two test today, all of a sudden I could import the pictures, but by the third test it was again the same (like in the picture)

LR thinks the greyed out photos are already in your catalog.   Two ways around this:

 

- Are you resetting the file number for each batch of photos?  That could fool LR into thinking that two different DJI_0039.DNG files are duplicates (even if they're not).  Don't reset the file numbers.

 

- Uncheck the option Don't Import Suspected Duplicates in the upper-right corner of the Import window.

My DJI Mini 2 drone has done the same thing.   When I reformat the card for the next flight, the drone wants to start the numbering at the beginning.  So Lightroom sees duplcates.  To solve it, I visually ensure they are not duplicates, use separate folders and uncheck the duplicates box.  It seems to help that keep my images in date folders.  I've found a way to change the naming choices in the drone.

I have a DJI Mavic Air 2 and always reformat the card. I do rename photos on import however. That too seems to solve this problem, because I have never seen it.
