I have a problem with images on a memory card that don't download on to Lightroom, or are not visible after the import has ended. see more detail below. please help.
I have just downloaded a 128 memory card into Lightroom 6, and a number of the images on the card (that are visible when I view them in camera), are simply not visible in the Lightroom download. when I try to repeat the download I am informed that there are no new images to download. when I try to re-import the images, all of the thumbnails of the missing images are visible, but also indicate that these images already exist. Help!

Instead of downloading the pictures using Lightroom, make a file on your desktop. Copy and paste all of your photos from the memory card into the folder. Open the folder and change your computer's Finder (Mac) or Explorer (PC) to the thumbnail viewing mode. If all of the files show up there, try opening them from there. If not, let me know and we will proceed to step 2.

Is this a new problem - that is, did it work in the past? Are you trying to import jpeg or raw?
First thing is to see if it is iphoto or the camera that has a problem.
Try uploading the images to another computer (try a PC - not that it is better, but PC is different). If the images can be seen & read there, the images are likely fine and iphoto may need an upgrade to read the format from the finepix s1500. Alternately, try copying the photos from your memory card (use a memory card reader) to your hard disk. See if another application can see the images (even use a word processor to import image), or e-mail the image to yourself and then use your web-browser to see the image.
If the camera images can't be read by multiple computers/multiple readers, then it may be that your memory card is corrupted.
Make sure the memory contacts show up a visible clarity. If there is no detection in any of the card readers, inthe camera and inthe PC, it seems likely that your card has some errors on it,
If the card is detecting the memory but is not showing any pictures, the use a file search in the search mode with the drive selected for pictures/images.
If not it will be best to have it checked with a photo studio to concur the findings since you have important images on it.
Hi, SD Memory Card is compatible with your Digimax 401 camera. You just need to format the card. Formatting a memory card ** This is used for formatting the memory card. If you run [FORMAT] on the memory card, all images, including the protected images, will be deleted. Be sure to download important images to your PC before formatting the memory card. ** If the memory card is not inserted, the internal memory will be formatted. ** Be sure to format the memory card if you are using a newly purchased or non-initialized memory card, if it contains data that the camera cannot recognize, or if it contains images captured with a different camera. Formatting a Memory Card 1. In any mode other than Voice Recording mode, press the MENU button. 2. Press the LEFT/ RIGHT button and select the [SETUP] menu tab. 3. Select the [FORMAT] menu by pressing the UP/ DOWN button and press the RIGHT button. 4. Select a desired sub menu by pressing the UP/ DOWN button and press the OK button. - If [No] is selected : The memory card will not be formatted. - If [Yes] is selected : A [PLEASE WAIT!] message appears and the memory card will be formatted. If you ran FORMAT in Play mode, a [NO IMAGE!] message will appear.
The lightroom library, the quick collection, only shows a image of the file- basically a thumbnail. If you move a file that has already been imported to lightroom around your computer- say you take images from your camera and put them in a folder on desktop, then drag them to lightroom. Lightroom will then refrence those images to that folder on the desktop, if you move that folder to "my pictures" lightroom won't know they've moved. Though i think the ? option would have found them, not a 100% sure on that. What may have happened is either the files have been renamed since being put into the lightroom library, or they were taken into lightroom from a portable device which you haven't got plugged in. Easiest way to find this out is to right click one of the images that is missing, and select "show in explorer" this will give you the file path, you'll be able to see if the image originally came from your hard drive, or a disconnected memory card- I'd suggest going to this folder outside of lightroom and having a look- your picture may well be there just renamed.
If the file has been renamed or moved around your computer, the easiest way to find it is to run a image search, in windows start menu --> search--->pictures. Check all the boxes so that you search the whole computer, go make a cup o tea cause the search can take a long time and will throw up anything that is in any way a image file. But you will hopefully see the image your after. If its there right click it and click open containing folder then you can put it back into lightroom.
If it is not there and the show in explorer option from lightroom told you that the image was on your harddrive means the image may well be lost. I don't know of a way to use the library image stored in lightroom to make a usable file that you can use.
One of the images did not finish writing to the card properly (usually in the last 4 or 5 images, or the last video) Try selecting all but the last 10 images and chose import selected. This should work. Then delete those from the card. This bit is important Put the card back in the camera (if it's in a usb reader) if not, disconnect the camera and put it into playback mode. View the remaining 10 images/video. Try re importing and it should work fine! I've had this problem since ilife '09 and this method always fixes it. It seems to happen when the cards get full. Try not to completely fill a memory card and you should not get the problem.
I know some of my cameras have a 'on board memory' and chip. Most likly the desired pictures are there, or the memory card conection (in the camera) is not making a full connection. can you clean the contacts?
