Are you referring to Lightroom CC (the cloud-based Lightroom) or Classic? In Classic, in the import dialog, there is an option to check to eject the card at the end of the import process. Not sure about Lightroom CC because I haven't imported for quite a while in that program.

I have the ssme problem today on latest LR Classic. I found a card in one of my cameras with unimported photos spanning 6 years and could find no option in the import dialog about ejecting the card or not.

I save by Year\month\day.

The closest I get is to select the month and then checkmark each day within it that has photos.

LR won't let me do another month at the same time so did 23 seperate imports and had to remove and re-insert the card each time. What a pain in the posterior region.

 

Can you post a screenshot showing that option?

Thanks.

That option should appear automatically when you start the Import process while there is a memory card inserted on your system. If you don't have a card inserted, or it's inserted but has already been ejected, that option does not appear. So, make sure there's a card inserted which the file system has detected, then try the Import operation again.

I'm pretty sure that Lightroom, the cloud-based app, does not have an option to prevent the card being auto-ejected. Only Lightroom Classic has that option.

I'm lost on this, I've never seen an SD card 'eject'. All I've ever known
with them is that I have to push them in to make them pop out.
That applies to all my cameras, my tablet, my laptops, the desktop pc's
I've owned.

What are we talking about here?

It doesn't physically eject them, that's just a term that the OS uses when you want to remove any device (removeable hard drive, usb device, memory card, etc.) from the list of currently mounted volumes. If you want to physically disconnect such a device, or remove a memory card, you first have to instruct the OS to "eject" it. Once the "eject" command has been successfully processed by the OS, it's then safe to disconnect the device or remove the memory card.

 

What we are talking about here is the import option which is available in Lightrrom Classic to have that eject command done automatically, rather than the user manually invoke the command. Once Lightroom Classic reports that the card has been ejected, it's then safe to physically remove it from the card reader.

Is it odd since in Lightroom Mobile you can still browse and delete images from your card after import, but in Lightroom Desktop it is unmounted automatically with no way of stopping it.

If you are referring to the cloud-based Lightroom, there is no way to stop the card from being automatically ejected after import. As a workaround after import I open Disk Utility to mount the card again wouldn't having to physically remove and reconnect it. I than use Image Capture to manage the photos on the card (usually delete). Both of these apps are part of the OS.
