    i used to put iphoto on a network HDD, i'm now switch to usb hdd. i removed all the photo album from iphoto, deleted iphoto library. i just want a clean import of photos. but every time i tried to import i get an error "Connection Failed: the server may not exist or it's unavailable at this time..." i've tried to delete com.apple.iphoto.plist file, opt+cmd+iphoto... but nothing seem to work.

    solved! some of the files were alias, iphoto keeps looking for it. i search for all the files that's less than 10kb and deleted. import works fine now.

    Which directory did you look for aliases?

    Thanks.
