CFexpress card (I can only check Type B) are not detected as (photo) devices like XQD and SD cards are. That results in those issues:

  • Card is not be ejected automatically after import (to me, the worst thing)
  • Add and Move can be used, where Add is a total no go, Move doesn't bother me personally

 

Please don't blame the OS for this.

 

Adobe can easily fix this by adding two lines of code checking if there is a DCIM folder in the root of the device or not. Of course that's only a workaround. But I'm pretty sure Adobe board has best contacts to Tim C®ook and this can be fixed in an instant teaming up with Apple, when blaming MacOS. I suppose Adobe will exactly do this, instead of working on a solution.

 

Honestly, there isn't much difference between SD and CFexpress shown by Disk Utility of Monterey 12.4, viewing the info for the Sony MRW-G1 (can read/write XQD and CFexpress Type B) and SATECHI for the SD Card. In the attached screenshot, I checked the info for the devices, not the volume partitions.

This has been discussed many times, including your suggestion. I move this to "ideas" because that makes more sense. Hopefully Adobe will finally listen.

Upvoted and yes, this needs a fix as many don't see this carefully, pick 'Move' and then wonder why the images no longer exist on the card. Kind of a big hurt me button.

I switched from a PC to a MacBook and now Lightroom Classic cannot see my CF Express card as a source card, and when I check include subfolders it shows nothing; no folders nor files.  It seems to think it is a hard drive but with no capabilities.  Bridge can see it, so why not LRC? Very frusstrating since I spent a lot to "upgrade" to CF Express cards from XQD.

Apple changed the security requirements in MacOS Monterey. Go to MacOS 'System Settings - Security & Privacy' and add Lightroom Classic and Photoshop to "Full Disk Access". Click on the lock icon to unlock the settings, then click on the plus icon to add Lightroom Classic and/or Photoshop if it isn't already listed. If it is listed, then just enable the checkbox.
