Help. I've tried everything!

I have a Canon 5d mark iii.
I'm trying to import photos into LR directly from the camera. This is what I've done for years with my old Canon Eos 50D.

Everything works great when I use Canon File Utility to transfer, then drag into LR 4.3.

But when I attempt to import in LR directly, it hangs in the middle and I have no choice but to restart LR.

I've tried isolating the issue. I've replaced the camera. I've replaced the SD card with a CF card. Nothing resolves this issue.

Is this a known issue with LR 4.3? I'm on mac OS 10.7.5
