Hello,

 

I recently purchased a new iMac (late 2012), and had all of my photos moved over from my old MacBook. I had a problem where iPhoto wouldn't import photos and instead would crash whenever an import was attempted. After moving all of my folders, files, pictures, music, etc. from my old Mac, iPhoto wouldn't work on my new iMac, either.

 

I have tried restoring the iPhoto library (Command+Option), I have tried "iPhoto Library Manager" (failed), and I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app. I have also backed up my photos via a flashdrive and they are safe but they won't import. I have also created a new library and tried importing and that also failed. I looked for 3ivx and I don't have it (searched for it in spotlight and Control+UpArrow 3x's, then application support, not there).

 

iPhoto says: "iPhoto has detected inconsistencies in your library. Please click Repair to avoid any potential problems". I click repair and then it says: A photo has been found in the iPhoto library that was not imported, would you like to import it?

     ^^This is where I run into problems, as iPhoto will not import anything without crashing.^^

 

Any help is greatly apprecitated,

JK

    I don't want to interfere with troubleshooting Mr. Devlin is already helping you with. However, there are some simple things you can do that might narrow the problem down.

     

    (1) Open iPhoto with the option key held down, create a new Library. Import some jpg files that are NOT FROM YOUR EXISTING iPHOTO LIBRARY into that new Library. I suspect some of the photos in your Library might be corrupted so use new or different jpg files. Work with them some in iPhoto. Does it work?

     

    (2) Log in as a different user, or create a new user and then log in as that user. Try using iPhoto without anything from your old Library. Does that work?
