It's been quite a while since I posted, but I have run into a problem to which I cannot find the answer.
I have a 30D, I bought it, I believe, 3 or 4 years ago.
I've never ever ever had an issue importing photos. I took around 2000 pictures the other day[working on a stop motion] it imported about 200 pictures then it stopped because the batteries in my camera died[my charger broke and I had to order a new one and I was hoping to import them all before my batteries died]. I know, I know. Use a CF card reader. I don't have one and I am dead broke. I have never had an issue with importing directly from my camera in the years I have been using DSLRs.
When I finally got my batteries all juiced up I plugged the camera in, loaded lightroom and it crashed. Froze entirely, I had to force quit to get out. I loaded lightroom first, then tried plugging my camera in. Again, froze and had to force quit.
Oddly enough, the same exact thing happened when I tried to import using iPhoto instead.
I have been trying every day to see if it changes and it does not.
Today I tried importing them onto my Dad's PC, but when trying to load them into lightroom the camera is recognized but it says "no photos were found to import."
I tried manually getting them off and using windows camera wizard, but it wouldn't allow it because ti said the device was in use.
I'm really desperate guys. I would like to try to reformat my card, but I have a paid job on here as well that I took right after the 2000 stop motion pictures.
