    What exact camera model do you have and what exact Mac OS X version do you use?

    This may or may not be related but... The RAW photos I took with my Canon were imported as JPEG files the very FIRST time I simply connected the camera via USB. I believe I happened to use iPhoto in that particular instance.
    Then, I learned how to use image capture [search it on spotlight], it shows and imports your RAW photos in RAW format. Ever since I have this peace of mind.
    When you import your RAW photos to your MBP, simply open LR5 and once again import those aforementioned RAW photos there.
    It should work just fine.
    PS: If you don't want to store the originals on your MBP [i.e. on an external hdd], SMART PREVIEW as you are importing on LR5 is your best friend.
    Hope this helps, best.
