Lightroom: Previews have black bars on sides

Hello!

For some reason I seem to no longer (all of a sudden) be able to view full size images on the import screen, they also have small black bars on the sides. Can some one please tell me what I am doing wrong?! Thank you!
I am adding a screen shot of what my import screen looks like.

The black bars indicate that the images are the tiny thumbnails the camera puts in each photo for viewing on the back LCD panel. Normally LR would show you the camera-embedded preview image that is much larger. For some reason it can't.

Do the photos import ok or are they corrupted?

Hmm, that is strange! They seem to import okay, no corruption and at full size.
Could it possibly be something set on the camera- iPhoto brings them up with black bars as well.
