Lightroom mobile only imports 4-5 images no matter how many are selected for import

I'm trying to import 20 images into Lightroom mobile via an SD card reader. No matter how many I select, Lightroom mobile only imports 4-5 images and ignores all the others. It will say "pending 20 images" and appear to start processing, but then it drops to either 4 or 5 and only imports those. 

I have the latest version of Lightroom Mobile and iOS 14.5 on my 2018 iPad Pro 12.9. There's plenty of available storage. The files being imported are Sony RAW images (from two different cameras so the model of camera isn't the issue). The images that DO import are fine. Lightroom Mobile sees the SD reader via files, not an attached device. 

I am at wits end with this. An iPad cannot be a part of a mobile workflow if I have to import images 4 to 5 at a time.
