Sorry, I should have read the whole thread. Yes, using import Files instead of Devices is a work-around. Can't imagine it has anything to do with the cardreader, since these files are recognised if they have been saved as uncompressed files.

Then might it be a firmware thing?

By the way, the big danger of that workaround is that it would allow you to import the photos while leaving them on the card. Format the card, and it's goodbye to the pictures (or time for ImageRescue).

PS Do you see these compressed RAFs' thumbnails in ImageCapture? What about when you examine the card using Finder?

I am experiencing this issue just in the past week after doing a fresh install of the OS on my iMac . I was having no problem viewing the previews of my compressed raw X-T2 files until I upgraded my Mac to 10.11.6 from 10.9.5. In the process, I removed and reinstalled Lightroom, and since I'm on the CC version, I got the latest - 2015.8.

I can assure everyone that this is not a hardware issue since none of mine changed - it's all software that changed. Unfortunately, since I changed two things simultaneously, I don't know which one caused the issue.

I'd sure like to get it resolved. Until then, I have to blindly import everything, then delete out what I would have simply not imported when I could see them in the preview.

Having recently changed from Canon to a Fuji Xpro2 I can confirm that compressed RAW files do not display as thumbnails on my system until downloaded from the card whereas uncompressed files do. As I always download all image files I don't find it a problem although it did give me a bit of a fright when it first happened as I thought that they were somehow corrupted or incompatible.

I recently updated my Mac to Sierra and now the problem does occur. I have reported the bug to Adobe.
