I have Aperture 3.4.5 and started a new library with importing of about 6000 images from some disks [DVDs] made at the time the pics were taken.  Almost all came in just fine, but there are a bunch of them which have that triangle on black "unsupported format" - but all the other pictures are just fine.  They were taken with a Canon 20D mostly and I did run reprocessing.  I don't know why they come in unsupported but thought I would ask first here.  Thanks.

    Have you tried re-importing a few that aren't recognized?  This would rule out problems with the drives/readers.


    I'm seeing this fairly often with card readers.  I don't use DVD's, but it's worth ruling out, imho.  You might clean the disks, too.  Can you open the unrecognized files in OS X's Preview app?
