About 6 months ago I imported pictures from a CD. Now Lightroom shows me the collection but says the photos are missing. Cannot locate them. When I try, nothing shows up in Finder. However, when I put the original CD back in the computer, the exclamation point vanishes and I can edit. Lightroom has the import screen greyed out and I don't seem to be able to re-import them

It sounds to me like you imported the files from their current location on the CD rather than choosing the option to copy the files to a new location during import.
