Lightroom mobile doesn't seem to support importing Canon's cr3 files from external storage.

I have Samsung Galaxy S10e with android 9 and trying to import cr3 files from Samsung T5 external SSD storage.

I have paid version of Lightroom mobile which offers me the possibility to import photos from external storage. When I try to do so, I can succesfully import jpeg and cr2 files, but when I try to select any cr3 file nothing happens (the files are shown, but there is no image preview and I can't click on any of them).

However, if I use the phone's file manager to transfer cr3 files from external storage to the phone storage, and then try to import cr3 files from the phone storage into Lightroom, it works completely fine.

So cr3 files are definetly supported, it just seems that for some strange reason, Lightroom mobile doesn't recognize them as supported when trying to import from external storage.
