trouble importing into Lightroom

I am using the latest version of Lightroom Classic and the latest MacOS Catalina. I am trying to import my photos into Lightroom to edit. When I try from either a memory card or from a file of photos on my desktop or external drive, one of two problems occur:

 

1- either some photos load on the screen but not the rest and a spinning beach ball takes over in which case  It forces me to "force quite" from Lightroom

 

2. - Photos load but I can't scroll down to see them all and the spinning beach ball takes over and again I have to "force quit" Lightroom.

 

Any ideas would be appreciated.

While the following does not sound like your issue, it might be tripping something up, and checking on the following is quick and simple.

 

Key word is Catalina. One stumbling block with that is increased cyber security in the MACOS. Problem many users have is ignoring or incorrectly answering a inquiry by the OS as to permission for an Application, and this can occur multiple times as the Application attempts to access files, folders, and other protected bits.

 

On your MAC bring up System Preferences, select Security & Privacy, select the Privacy tab, scroll down to Files and Folders, make sure all boxes are checked, do this also for a Photoshop.

You might also, want to scroll up and check the same for Photos (if you place photos  in that default folder)

Hi
Tried your suggestions to no avail. As soon as I move. my mouse to select
import photos, it turns into the spinning ball and I am now frozen.
