I know this isn't a new problem and that other people have experienced it, but I was wondering whether anyone had managed to work out exactly why it happens. I'm a recent switcher who wants to transfer all of my photos to my new machine. On my Windows machine, they were all stored in individual folders based on events, and then all of THEM within a single folder called 'Photos'. When I try to import this 'photos' folder, iPhoto 06 got a short way in and then simply quit, bringing up the familiar 'close/report/reopen' window. The error message is as follows: MAN that's a lot of text. Anyway, I thought it might just be an iPhoto 06 problem, so I went out and bought iLife 08, but the problem still remains. I thought maybe it might be something as small as iPhoto trying to import an invalid file format, like one of the random thumbnail cache files, or even a movie clip from a digital camera, but trying to bypass those kind of files still causes crashes. Any ideas?
