Help Me Please!
Jan 9, 2013

Ok, I just bought a new mac mini and lightroom 4.

I opened lightroom 4, did the update, plugged in my external drive, went to import and selected the photos I wanted to move in to Lightroom (or at least that's what I thought I did).

I see all of my photos as thumbnails in LR, the minute I unplug my external drive I get an error message in LR saying "photo x could not be used because the original file could not be found. Would you like to locate it?"

What the heck did I do wrong? Apparently I didn't transfer the files onto my new mac's hdd. Once I plug in my external again I can view everything.

What do I have to do to fix this so I can unplug my external and have my full catalog available in LR?

Thank you for your help!
