Lightroom Classic: I am trying import images from a hard drive but some wont import. They are random ones throughout the folder

I know the files are in the folder, I can open them with photoshop and when I try to import all the images into LR, they are not there.  I have tried removing the folder and then re-importing but nothing is working

What format are the images? And is "Don't import suspected duplicates" checked in the File Handling panel?

Having reloaded everything the same is happening, but the images that are failing to import say that they are already in another catalog - how can I resolve that?

Check that error message again. I suspect it says they're already in THIS catalog, since Lightroom doesn't check other catalogs.
