    I'm assuming importing from the same camera and cf card has been successful for you in the past. Can you share a little more information? What type of camera? You menion an update ... an update of Aperture? Digital Raw? Both? Does the import work for some of the photos, but not all, or just bail entirely?

    If the restart fails to be the magic wand, I'm wondering about a corrupted CF. I had a problem once where import would fail. Via trial and error, importing smaller batches of photos, I found several of the images were corrupted. Once import hit the bad images, it failed. This was an older version of Aperture 3.x.


    Copying to the hard drive may succeed if the corruption is in areas digital camera raw cares about. Whereas a general copy (byte by byte) will work fine. The copy duplicates the bad data.


    But if this is happening on all of your CF cards ... something else is afoot. I suppose you could try a quick experiment using iPhoto. If iPhoto works, it's certainly point the finger at Aperture.
