Hi,

I am trying to import a PSE8 catalog into LRC (new install - all updated).  The import fails immediately on starting the third step and I get an error message "Lightroom could not import this catalog because of an unknown error".  I feel like I'm missing something basic. 

 

Thanks for any help!

Where are you original photos & PSE8 catalog stored? Are you using 'Import a Photoshop Elements Catalog" under File? Here is Adobe's article if you haven't seen it yet: https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom-classic/how-to/elements-upgrade-creative-cloud-photography.html

Which platform are you running Lightroom on Windows or Mac?

Thanks for the response.  I am attempting importing via file/import a Photoshop Elements Catalog.

The catalog is on the same system that is running LRC.  The photos are on a Western Digital attached drive.

This is a Windows system.

 

Thanks!
