I don't know what happened... but my lightroom freezes and becomes

to import photos. I've already tried reinstalling Lightroom... the
problem is still there. I was able to import with no problems just 2
days ago...

Can anyone give me some pointers as to what could be wrong? Thanks!

What OS are you using, and have you tried uninstalling the drivers of your camera? If everything fails, you can always do system restore. 2 days is not much.

Also, the Adobe software, including, inexplicably, "pro" software like LR, install the obnoxious Adobe Photo Downloader in the system tray which opens every time you connect your camera or mem card. You can try disabling it from the startup items, and also go into the Edit menu in LR, then Preferences-Import and uncheck the "Show import dialog when a memory card is detected". See if that works. You'll have to uncheck that option in LR though, or else I think the idiotic Photo Downloader will be reinstalled automatically.
