Hello.
I just upgraded Lightroom to 5.6.

After that I am unable to import photos from my Canon 1DX. The import window just hangs on my W8.1 computer, and I have to turn off my 1DX to make Lightroom respond again.

Did not happen with other versions of Lightroom.
I have to copy the files from the card to my HDD and afterwords synchronize my catalog to import the files.

What happened with version 5.6? How to solve this?

Same problem here.
Except Pentax instead of Cannon + SD card in a reader instead of camera connected.

Problem with SD card is worth. It takes computer reboot to recover.

Same workaround worked for me. Not an acceptable workaround though!

Hello Vladimir.
I was able to fix the problem by uninstall Lightroom and reinstall again.
Now it works!

It might work for you as well.

Best regards Andreas
