Z50 Lightroom import via usb, no nef preview images

When I use Lightroom (latest classic verion, Windows 11) to import from Z50 using usb cable, Lightroom says no preview image available for nef files. Jpeg files display normally, and both nef and jpeg import normally.

When I remove the sd card and import from it via usb card reader I get previews for both nef and jpeg and imports work as expected.

Any suggestions?

Don't import via USB?

It's slower and less efficient than going through a card reader anyway.

If you have a card reader, I would just use it.  It's easier and faster.

Thanks, y'all. That's pretty much what I'm doing. Just have to remember to put the card back in the camera!
