when I'm trying to use lightroom in either the library or develop, I keep getting the select a source page appear over the top of what I'm doing, I press cancel each time, but it re-appears constantly. Does anyone know what I am I doing wrong, or should be doing to stop this. The camera isn't connected and I've removed the card reader but that didn't stop it appearing. Each time it appears the "add" selection is lit. It's the latest version,  Thanks

Hi Dianes,

You're not in Develop mode, you're in the import dialog and Lightroom is waiting for you to import images. Lightroom is expecting you to choose a folder that has images needing to be imported.


Also, could you share a screenshot with us?

Regards,
Sahil

your import is set to "add" which means it will NOT be copying any files to a new location. This is bad if your source is not your hard drive.

I've tried switching it to copy, but each time it appears, which it's doing constantly it has the "add" selection lit. I'm not attempting to import anything right now, I'm trying to develop

Hi, I'm getting the same issue, is there a way to stop Lightroom from continually asking to select a source?

You have to cancel bottom right, But the select source screen will pop up again.

I'm using a Lexus USB3.0 card reader, I believe that being connected is causing the issue.

But I don't want to keep connecting and disconnecting the card reader everytime I use lightroom.

There is no card in the reader.

Many Thanks

Dave
