Lightroom CC: Can't add photos

I can no longer add photos to Lightroom CC from my SD card.



(The message says that "some" photos were not added, but it really means "all".)

This problem is in addition to a post I made previously about not being able to filter or create albums. I can no longer do anything in Lightroom except view photos, and even then, I can only view them if I've connected my computer to the external drive with the originals.

Migrating to Lightroom CC was just a massive mistake for me.

I solved all the problems I was having by uninstalling and re-installing Lightroom. It was hardly an ideal solution, but I didn't seem to have much choice.

I am having the same problem on an iMac Pro, trying to import photos from a Canon EOS R via USB 3.

Have you tried using a card reader? Importing directly from an attached camera often causes problems.
