More often than not (and more often than is safe for an already stressed person!) LR crashes when I ask it to import.
I've tried the following which was suggested on another forum -
(Easiest way for you to solve the problem is to rename the LR preferences file:
On your Windows Vista system, while LR is closed, click on the start button and - under "Search Programs and Files", enter the following:
Then press Enter
Within the "Lightroom" folder, you see a folder called "Preferences", in which you find a file called "Lightroom 3 Preferences.agprefs"
Rename the file "Lightroom 3 Preferences.agprefs" to "Lightroom 3 Preferences.agprefs.old"
Start Lightroom, a new preferences file will be built.
Choose the catalog you used last to be opened)
It still happens.
Does anyone have any ideas please?
