    Import failed. Video corrupted or unrecognizable

    Thanks for the link, Victoria! You solved the problem. I went ahead and installed QuickTime. Note - if you choose the Custom option during the installation you can choose what to install and what not to install. I chose to install just the QuickTime Essentials and not the QuickTime Player...

    Import failed. Video corrupted or unrecognizable

    I wondered that too. However the Quicktime web page says "QuickTime 7 is for use with Windows Vista or Windows 7. If installed on other versions of Windows, it may not offer full functionality." Therefore they don't recommend it for windows 10. If Lightroom requires it in order to recognize...

    Import failed. Video corrupted or unrecognizable

    I copied the photos and videos from my Nexus 5X phone to my PC and then did an import into lightroom using the Add option. All of the JPG images imported but all of the videos failed with the following message: "The video file appears to be corrupted or unrecognizable. It has no audio or video...

    merge metadata from jpg to dng?

    Thanks, that does look useful. But I've been working with exiftool (which is free) and I did figure out how to do it there with some help from the forum for syntax. The command line is: exiftool -tagsfromfile %d%f.jpg -Caption-Abstract -Description -ImageDescription -IPTC:Keywords -XPSubject...

    merge metadata from jpg to dng?

    I'm in the process of switching from Picasa to Lightroom. My camera has been set to take both RAW and JPEG. In one folder I have both the RAW and JPEG files. When I import them into LR, I unchecked the option for "Treat JPEG files next to raw files as separate photos". Therefore LR shows the...

    Can't import/Add at full resolution

    Thanks for the suggestion Victoria. I updated the graphics card driver (GeForce 9800GT - old driver version 341.92, new version 341.95) and that solved the problem! I should have tried the Enter/Escape key press prior to the update but I didn't so I can't answer that one. I appreciate your advice.

    Transitioning to LR - folders with RAW and JPG

    I am new to lightroom. I've been reading tons of web sites and posts on work flow. I'm still not comfortable that I know how to transition my existing photos into Lr. My folders on my PC are organized by year and within them by "event". Each event folder contains a combination of DNG and JPGs...

    How to export and overwrite?

    The problem is that while I'm on vacation and backing up my pictures, i don't have lightroom and therefore cannot export the JPGs. If I only shoot raw, I can back the files up to my tablet but I can't see them (except within the camera and my eyes are too darn old for that). Also, once i get...

    How to export and overwrite?

    Thank you very much for your solution. I was able to export and overwrite the existing JPGs. I am very grateful that you were willing to take the time to solve this issue. In summary, the work flow I should have used for import is as follows: Connect camera to PC Copy all photos to hard drive...

    How to export and overwrite?

    FYI - I'm a newbie to lightroom. Just started using it a few weeks ago. I will address your questions below but at the moment, I really do need a solution to my current problem. I'm afraid to delete the existing JPGs (via Windows from the hard drive) because lightroom claims some (all?) are...

    How to export and overwrite?

    I'm new to lightroom, trying to figure out my process flow. I'm stuck at the export step. Here's what I've done: My camera creates a RAW and JPG photo for each photo taken. I imported all the photos into lightroom and converted the raw images to DNG. LR is smart enough to understand that the...
