will not import files Sony ARW a7 mk2

I have a Sony RX100 and 5.7 LR matter files ARW ok, however I just bought an A7 Mk2 and Lightroom will not import this camera ARW files. I downloaded CameraRaw 8 so I can convert the files first and then import into LR, but it seems strange that I can't import and convert from LR itself from the inside.


I checked the link and it's for LR 5.7.1

See the screen capture.

  • Windows Mail will not import files from old account OE DBX, all patches?

    Hi, I looked at other issues here but they don't seem to work as I have more access to OE.

    Basically, the computer crashed and OE does not open. No problems with the e-mail address that I opened Outlook and organized the emails to come by here.

    However, having identified the OE store folder (now saved on the desktop), I can't raise the old emails.

    Tried to import via Outlook in a different folder, however no joy because it only allows me to select the folder.

    Tried to import in Thunderbird - no joy.

    Found that Windows Live Mail allows you to import the DBX and had little joy with it, but not much. WLM import only new emails that had not been read could be read. Tried to make individual DBX files and each of them at the same time, but do not show them.

    When WLM downloads the file it indicates how many e-mail are in there, (258 sent items) but never present themselves.

    Any suggestions please?


    Most of the problems with OE not starting not not are due to corruption of (hidden) folders.dbx.  Try to delete this (see www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#7) and then see if OE will start.  If this isn't the case, then move all the message store dbx files and then must start OK.  Then you can try to use file | Import | Messages, point to the directory to which you moved your dbx files, but if folders.dbx is corrupt they won't import.  Yes, you can try the method described here: www.oehelp.com/backup.aspx#imp1 to manually import dbx files into OE.  Then you can get them in Outlook or WLM after having done this.  If dbx files will not even import, you can extract what content they maintain with my DBXpress program (www.oehelp.com/DBXpress/).

  • 6 Lightroom will not import files (not accessible writable)


    I am currently flowing lightroom 6.7 and everytime I go to import the photos I get a notification saying that the photos cannot be copied to the destination folder because it is not writable. Screen Shot 2016-09-24 at 10.09.33 AM.png I've updated to the latest version of the software and all and the problem still occurs. All responses are greatly appreciated. (Shooting with a Sony A58).  Thank you

    This problem is a problem with the permissions on the destination folder. You must ensure that the file includes both read and write permissions. If you do not know how to handle this, do a web search for something like, 'permissions of files and folder Mac"and you should find lots of information about how to change the setting.

  • Lightroom will not import pictures more

    I used the same SIM card and shaped for a while and all of a sudden it will not import files... How can I solve this problem?

    This means that you don't have the appropriate permissions to the directory that attempts to copy your photos in Lightroom.

    To resolve this issue, you must determine the directory where Lightroom is trying to copy the photos to (in the import dialog on the right, this is the section named 'Destination'). Once you know which directory it is, you must change the permissions on this exact directory & read/write. If you do not know how to change the permissions, go to your favorite search engine and type change permissions Mac

  • I have a 80 d but iPhoto, Lightroom 5 & Photoshop will not import RAW (CR2) files

    I just bought n 80 d and was happy with the possibility of processing the RAW (CR2) files, but all my photo programs will not import the files, because they are not recognized. iPhoto, Photoshop and Lightroom 5.  I'm under Maverick on my Mac.  Strange thing however, Image Capture will import them. Any suggestions?

    The 80 d is a bit too new.  It is normal that updates camera RAW trolling a few months.

    I see that Adobe does support your camera if you upgrade to Lightroom CC.  See: http://blogs.adobe.com/lightroomjournal/2016/03/camera-raw-9-5-now-available.html

    As for Apple, you can see a big difference between updates of the Mavericks:


    vs updates for El Capitan (Mavericks is two complete versions behind):


    Even though Apple has not yet released the Digital Camera RAW for the 80 D update, I'm pretty confident that you will find that you have to upgrade to get to El Capitan.  BTW, OS updates are free from Apple.  Just launch your app 'App Store' and check the updates and you should see which indicates that an upgrade of the OS is available for you.  (Apple has stopped selling updates of the BONE several years ago.)

  • Window Movie Maker will not import a mp3 file get that a C: {file location} .mp3 error could not be imported

    OP: Window Movie Maker will not import an mp3 file. Why?

    I tried to imort a song from my music file which is in mp3 format, but the program won't. She won't tell me why, it just says: "C: {file location} .mp3 cannot be imported."  I imported 2 other songs that are the same exact format. Why is it cant import the file?

    Hello spardigus,

    1 - is the full error you get when you try to import the file?

    Some of the Mp3 files can be compressed in various formats. I suggest that you search information below and check out them if you are able to import the files.

    It might be possible that the file may be corrupted and is not readable by Movie Maker. I suggest that you copy the file to a different location on your computer and you are trying to import.

    Also check the size of the file. If it shows 0 bytes, there are good chances that the file may be damaged.

    I suggest that you try to convert this file to avi format using an Audio Converter. There are several converters which helps you convert the file in the required format. Convert the file and try to import.

    You can use your favorite search engine to find the program that will help convert the files.


    Using third-party software, including hardware drivers can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the use of third-party software can be solved. Software using third party is at your own risk.

  • Since 2015.1 updated some .mov and other will not import video files

    Since the update to 2015.1 some of my mov files from various sources (some exported out of first, a lot are a set of overlays of light leak that I downloaded) will not import into first.  He said: "no Audio or Video Stream Found."  Well, I can open and play them in Quicktime or VLC, and I used them in my projects from before the update.  If I open an old project that contained these. MOV files (and it worked very well) that they are now offline.  If I try to make a link to the error, even.  I tried the old trick to change the directory where they are and cleaning, then my cache of media (have had problems with.) MTS files in the work stop spent) but no luck.  "No audio or video track not found) even if it is obvious that they still exist."  I have almost no extra codecs or anything of this nature installed, so no conflict.  Ugh.  Anyone else run into this?  Someone at - it a difficulty in addition to transcoding know everything?

    Well, I'm happy to report that I was wrong, and it was NO fault of Adobe Premiere.  I still have some other problems with the first update, but this problem was actually the result of my uninstall iTunes, which caused an error in Quicktime.

    When I started reading other peoples problems and reduced my problem until ProRes video and AAC audio, I found a few others who have said that they were having problems with Quicktime.  So I open Quicktime and tried to play the MOV files (usually use VLC Player) and of course, he could not play because "software of Apple service something or other assistance" has not been installed, the result of my uninstall iTunes, I assume (I had done this at the time I improved the first).  So, I installed a new Quicktime layer, and everything is back to working normally again!

    Sorry I have been quick to point the finger at Adobe, although the latest few have caused their share of questions for me, giving me reason to doubt.  In this case, however, it's for lack of my own/Apple.

  • Will not import MOV. WAV. file format, says unsupported file format

    My Premiere Pro will not import any of my files, AFAIK. one day it was working fine, the other just to stop. These are the same file formats, I've used it before and worked fine. When I try to import MOV. the files that I turned on my Canon Rebel it tells me the file format is not supported. I have the codec for the format and imported this format before. As far as I know he does this with all file formats. Im a bit stuck.

    OK last resort:

    Restart the computer, while opening the first press alt + shift.

    If who disobeys, I think re - install is the next step (including using cleaning tool).

  • Computer will not import photos

    Computer will not import pictures either from camera or SD reader - there are 1,000 images this size would be too heavy for my laptop? I am running Windows Vista Home Premium 2 GB. I click on Photo Gallery - click on file - click the Pictures dialog box - then import appears - no new images on the device.  Any ideas?

    Hi silverfox16,

    1. were you able to import photos before without any problem?

    This error message occurs when you try to transfer the same pictures again.

    You can try to cut and paste the images using Windows Explorer and check.

    Alternatively, you can try to delete or rename the database file that checks the duplicates.

    Navigate to the location next and Pictures.pd4 and rename it to Pictures.pd4.old or remove the file and check.

    C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Photo Gallery\Pictures.pd4 (or sometimes.pd5) and rename
