All of a sudden I can no longer import photos. When I try and import, the bar showing importing, just goes away? What should I do?

Google it to find out how to do it with your operating system.
Or read page 495 of your Classic book - then you know it's reliable.

If that doesn't help, give some more details - these are on your local disk? SD Card (how connected)?...

Appreciate the responses. I tried to resetting preferences. Never got the dialogue box asking me if I wanted to reset. I did get all the little notes telling me what everything is. Also while I can see my files in the Library in Lightroom no images are showing at all.
I load my photos via a card reader to my hard drive. I then import them into Lightroom. I have been doing it that way for years. Am I going to need to reinstall Lightroom? If yes, what is the best way to go about it? Thank you

I don’t know what to say. I click on on different items in preferences. I rebooted my computer. I tried suggestions people provided. I was literally at my wits end when I looked and Lightroom was importing my images. The message saying No photos in previous import was gone. My images were back. I do not know what happened nor do I know why it is ok now. I thank everyone for their help. Oy!
