Lightroom for mobile: Can't export photos from phone to computer anymore

So, I am very fond of the Lightroom CC app and am (had been) enjoying uploading RAW photos from my phone to my laptop.

To be well noted is the fact that I don't actually own Lightroom on my laptop. I'm still rolling with CS6 & ACR. 

So, to upload the photos onto my laptop I have been opening iTunes, connecting my Iphone via USB cable, go to 'File Sharing,' click on '0000000000000000000000000' (etc.) and then I save it to my laptop. Usually works super easy without issue and everyone ends their day with a smile on their face...


Now, I try to do the above and after a minute or so of "uploading" the photos, I am greeted angrily by the message:

"000000000000000000000000000000000" could not be copied because an error occurred. An unknown error occurred (-1426)."

And that's the end of it. No photos uploaded, and at the moment I can't upload photos onto my laptop. Can't see a way to fix the issue. Would absolutely love any tips anyone might have. 

If worst came to worst I think I could convert all the photos from Lightroom CC into JPEG images and move them into my Photos library on the phone, and upload from there. Problem with this is this would take a ridiculously long time and I lose the joy of RAW files. 

End of the day, I'd love to just go back to how easy and simple it was before if possible. Anyone have any tips... please?

That's not a supported way of accessing files, so I'm afraid the official answer will be "sync the photos to the cloud via a LR subscription if you want to get the raw files back to your desktop".
