Which application are you using?
Which version?
Which OS version?
Is there more to the error message?

Lightroom 3.6 Window 7 The error message reads: Unexpected error opening catalog"--
the catlog could not be opened due to unexpected error"

I have tried reformatting the camera card, doesn't help. I have been shooting in RAW, so I changed to JPEG--didn't help.

I started a new catalog and LR downloaded the card, but than got an error message that said, "Some import operatons not preformed" "Not imported because they could not be read".

Should I uninstall and reinstall LR?
