Lightroom Classic: v10.1 sometimes shows duplicates of images on an SD card in the Import Dialog

Sometimes (not always) when I go to import images from an SD card, the import dialog shows each file (jpeg and raw) twice if the "don't import suspected duplicates" option is unchecked. I think this is incorrect behaviour, even with that option unchecked. The files only exist once in the SD card.

Here is an example

This is what shows in Finder for the SD Card:

and here is another from a different SD card and camera:

This is the Lightroom version:

and the Mac information:

Are you connecting the camera directly to the computer or using a Card Reader?

If Camera try a card reader. If a card reader try a different card reader or cable or USB port on your computer or connecting the camera.

@Just_Shoot_Me it’s the built in card reader in my Macbook Pro. Next time I see the problem I’ll try reading straight from the camera. Although as the OS is only seeing one copy of each file (when LRC is seeing two) that makes me suspect software rather than hardware. Unless LRC is bypassing the OS?

It is in this menu that it happens, uncheck the box highlighted in yellow.

That option you commented on is not what the OP is referring to at all.

Did you actually look at the screen shots he posted and or read his original post?

J'ai pensé que c'était le pb des jpg + raw.... sinon, vous avez oublié de cocher ne pas importer les images déjà importées.

I thought it was the jpg + raw pb .... otherwise, you forgot to check not to import the images already imported.

No, the point is that this is incorrect behaviour even if that option is not selected, as I said in the original post. I should not see every raw file and every jpg file shown twice.

Sometimes weird behavior is corrected/cured by resetting the preferences.

Reset Procedure:

1. Close Lightroom.

2. Hold down [Alt/Opt]+[Shift] while restarting Lightroom.

3. Choose the option to reset preferences in the pop-up window.

4. Close Lightroom.

5. Restart Lightroom.

Does that help?

I am also seeing this SD card import file 'duplication' bug. One file on the SD card, 2 files in the Lightroom import dialogue, only it's ignoring one of them as a duplicate.
