Import:

Importing files into my catalogue seems to be a thing of luck. I can't import a lot of my files due to the following problem: failure with trying to find a place for the imported data. (but its in german).. what can i do?

Is that a : colon I spy in that filename? If so, that won't work because it's a special character in the OS.

Yes, you could rename while importing if you're moving out copying them. If you're adding them at an existing location, you'd need to use other software to rename them first. I'm a big fan of better file rename.
