I keep a card reader permanently connected to my system, but when I open Lightroom cc Classic, (still do not like the new naming), the import dialog will not open, however when I disconnect the usb cable from the hub and reconnect the dialog opens as it normally should, not so much "show import dialog when memory card is detected" but show only when card reader is newly connected........anyone have the same problem, seems weird to me, necessary box is checked in preferences, and the same applies whether I start afresh from powering up my computer or if I have been working and insert the memory card, just seems a pointless part of the system to have if its not going to work, same is true on the laptop also.

UPDATE........This seems totally ridiculous but after some playing around, I have discovered that If I actually have lightroom open and on my screen in front of me, and insert the memory card......the import dialog does not appear.......BUT if I Minimise lightroom and then re-insert the memory card, the Import dialog appears as if by magic........try it guys, it was like a revelation for me.....ok, a bit dramatic sounding........who cares, it works.
