I have been having constant problems that are getting worse over time. I started a new catalog, optomized it, done everything i can find online to check. I have windows 10, i use lightroom classic to import files, when i connect my CF or SD card to my card reader and click import it hangs. Especially if I have a large number of photos. I save to 2 diffrent locations upon import for redundancy.

I am sorry to hear about your import issues, Paul. 

With Lightroom closed: Can you see your card reader in Windows Explorer?  If so, can you drag files from the card to a Desktop Folder?  If you disconnect your Card Reader from the machine and then launch Lightroom will it import the folder you've just populated?

@Paul Hagen: Additionally please provide number of files you are trying to Import. Version of your CF/SD Card will also help. If you leave it to Import, does it show any progress?
