I have just run into a problem with Aperture 2.0. When I insert the the CF card to download, the import screen comes up, it begins to show previews from the CF card....and then just stops. I have to force quit the program.

I copied the files from the CF card to the hard drive and tried an import from there....same thing. I do not use the Aperture library feature, but import to my own rebuilding the library seems kind of a waste....

I have the latest Aperture 2 updates, all the latest Leopard updates....and have not found any real discussion short of a small thread on Apple Support that never resolved the issue.

Anyone else run into this problem lately?

Have you been able to actually see all the images somewhere? Are you sure something on your CF card is not corrupt?

I had the same problem....still do. So, go into Aperture's preferences and turn off importing when the CF card is installed. Sorry I'm not home now and on a PC so I cannot tell you the exact phrases or locations.

After that just import the CF card files to a new folder that you create on your desktop. Then import the images that are now on the desktop into Aperture. This works just fine and only adds a couple of minutes of extra time.

This is the only work around I found for this. This started happening to me over 6 weeks ago.
