This has been an issue since Lightroom 3. When using a NAS that has Windows Shared (SMB) there is a limitation to folders of 132 files, if your folder has over 132 files, Lightroom will randomly decide which photos to import and will not import them all. Now if you import the files from your camera card and have copy and add, it will work and copy all the files to our NAS with no problem.

Which OS are you running on? (MacOS has well known, serious issues with SMB that Apple is still working to solve. Most users have better luck using CIFS to connect to servers.)

We are using Windows (7/8) machines both have the issue and in Lightroom 4 we used Windows XP machines with the same issue. the NAS is a Linux Ubuntu machine.
