Hi guys hope your well. I am having problems today with importing images in to teh import screen, I have not had this problem before and only used light room last night with no probs and this morning this is happening. When i click import normally i drag the images in to the screen from the explorer folder and import, this no longer works. I tried locating the folder from the left side panel  source but i have a sub folder inside a main folder when when locating the master folder it shows no sub inside in the panel. I placed the images in to the main folder to see and nothing again. I can see the import photos from the sd card soucre and also tried a jpeg from another folder which i can see.

Make sure you have selected a destination folder first. Apparently there is a bug where Lightroom does not show any photos if a destination folder is not chosen.
