Unable to import image files from viable CD's. Pop-up window indicates: "Some import operations were not performed" Could not move a file to the requested location.
Tried opening another catalog and same window popped up. No import issues from CD's before this.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Do other import operations work, from your hard-drive, for instance?

An error with a "move" could be a problem with the deletion from the source, which cannot occur because it is a readonly CD. Does an Add or a Copy or DNG type of Import work from the CD?

Has anything happened to your profile that makes the destination of the import not writable for you?

This can happen if the photo file on the CD is marked as read only.

I get around it by copying the CD photo files to a hard disk and then performing the import operation.
