When importing Camera RAW photos from an external drive Pictures folder into Lightroom, copying as DNG, the photos to be imported flickered around the import grid, then the grid went blank. No photos imported. I had previously successfully imported pfotos. Now, no photos import. Just get the flickering photos then a blank grd.

This usually means you've already imported the photos and LR is set to ignore duplicates. It takes a while for LR to check each photo, but when it finds a duplicate, it removes it which causes a flicker.
