Lightroom Classic Freezes when trying to import images.
Lightroom Classic, version 10.3, I have used LR since version 1.
It's not a hardware problem, it's a catalog corruption problem. I have created new catalogs on 3 different hard drives and still am only able to import images without LR freezing right after creating the new catalog. If I close out LR & re-open it, then try to import it freezes & I need to shut it down. I read one comment in another thread insisting it was a hardware issue, though the OP had run scans that showed there were no hardware issues. Or that it was due to the CPU-intensive usage while importing photos.
All my images are copied to the hard drive before importing into LR because the program kept crashing when trying to import from the memory. Unfortunately, this did not help. I have only had this problem the last 2-3 months at most. I've imported large files in the past with no issues (from 36 & 45-megapixel cameras).
The only error msgs I receive is Lightroom is not responding.
I can not import photos without it crashing. (The catalogs keep corrupting).
I have restarted it.
Uninstalled & re-installed it.
I have reset preferences.
I have shut off graphics acceleration.
I have updated Windows 10 & keep LR updated.
Created numerous catalogs on different hard drives. Results are I can import 1 time after creating a new catalog, thereafter I can no longer import images, it crashes.
