Downloaded LR 6.6 and now cannot import photos from card. Pictures are in the folder but LR does not display them. Tried importing from the disc, same thing, only grey squares displayed.

Which OS?  And which camera are the files from?

If you go ahead and press Import, even without seeing the thumbnails, does it import?

Same OS as yesterday when it worked fine. Win10 Pro. Canon EOS 5D Mark II
It imports the files from the card, I can see all the pictures in Windows Explorer. But only grey squares are displayed in LR. If I delete the folder from LR and try importing directly from the disc, exactly the same thing - 119 pictures imported but only grey squares displayed. Was using LR yesterday for some hours and all was good. Downloaded 6.6 this morning and now cannot import. Tried adding, then copying and still only grey squares displayed.

hmmm  - Tried optimising the catalogue and LR crashed. When I restarted it the pictures appeared. So possibly a catalogue problem, but definitely something is not quite right.
