In Aperture version 3.4.5, I m not able to import any file from a connected camera, memory card as I usually did.

I have set up that import directly when a camera is connected. This does not work at all.


Sometimes it send all the imported files directly to the trash. In this case the thumbnails are empty. I mean in black background.

Sometimes it shoes a warning window. "importing items completed with errors" "Aperture failed to imports the items listed below" and here are all the files to be imported.

Please I would thank any suggestion

Aperture 3, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.5)

    What kind of camera and images?


    Can it be, that you have set a write protection on the card in the camera? I have seen this causing the "importing items completed with errors"   error message.


    Have you tried importing from a different card? If a different card works, you may need to reformat your card in the camera.

    From Canon EOS 450 directly, or insertin the memory card on the Imac. Also from my Iphone 4.

    Always .jpg format. In the card surely unlocked.

    I have tried with this 3 ways, that have worked untill now.

    I wonder if there is any problem with new aperture upgrade?.
