    Hi All,

    A while back I was importing some pictures into iPhoto, and the import wasn't
    completed - I can't remember why, maybe the drive / camera was disconnected or something.

    Anyway, no bother as I didn't want the pictures anyway.

    But the problem is that now when ever I open iPhoto, I get a dialogue box telling me that " 17 photos have been found in the iPhoto library folder that were not imported. Would you like to import the? No - Yes "

    If I press 'no', then I can carry on - if I press 'yes' then iPhoto hangs ( due to looking for non-existent photos I guess ).

    Any ideas on how to fix this?

    cheers:)

    Hi,

    you could try to "overwrite" that import status.

    Just import a random picture from Finder (or camera) into iPhoto. Maybe this will update the internal iPhoto import status.

    Hi,

    I just found this thread at Apple's support site.

    Hope this works.

    Maybe have that camera plugged in when you choose yes.
