    Hi,

    I use Lightroom 3.6.
    Recently I upgraded the OS in my macbook pro to El Capitan.
    After that I realized that lightroom is not detecting my camera when I am trying to import photos.

    Does anyone know what is the issue and how to fix the issue?

    Thanks.

    You are using an ancient version of Lightroom, in combination with the latest MacOS X. That is a recipe for problems. I think the only solution would be to upgrade Lightroom.

    Yes, I realize he is probably not trying to tether his camera (that's what I assumed), but simply downloading photos. That should work fine with a card reader.
