Hello, 

somebody can help me with this problem?

In Lightroom CC Classic, I can't import DNG Files..

anybody has a solution?

I am not able to duplicate this problem.

 

Have you tried exporting as DNG and then checking the box "Add to This Catalog" instead of trying to import the exported DNG?

 

"My other question is: there is a possibility to save a raw files with all the history modification outside the software...to storage in a external  drive???"

 

This is not the way Lightroom Classic was designed to operate. The edits are stored in the catalog file, so if you ever need them, all you need is the catalog file and the original RAW. What you are describing (I think) is not necessary and not a good way to "archive" things. You can move the photos to an external drive and leave them in Lightroom Classic, so the edits are always connected to the photo.

 

You can have the edits written to a "sidecar" xmp file, but only certain Adobe software can read these edits and properly make use of them. And this is not a recommended way of "archive". And the sequence of steps in the edit history is not saved this way, only the final edit is saved.

Please post your System Information as Lightroom Classic (LrC) reports it. In LrC click on Help, then System Info, then Copy. Past that information into a reply. Please present all information from first line down to and including Plug-in Info. Info after Plug-in info can be cut as that is just so much dead space to us non-Techs.

So nothing odd about the camera. Not some camera storing photos in a propriatory DNG format, so not a non total ADOBE spec DNG issue. Only a very few cameras doing that. I think some Lica, and a Hassabald unit in a Drone.
