using the path given by the error message.
Once at the iPhoto Library, single click it to select it and then Right Click it and select Show Package Contents.
You will see all the files and folders inside the iPhoto Libary, including (we hope) the offending ones.
Move the offending folders onto the desktop and see how you get on.
I connect my iPhone 3G to my MacBook Pro via the USB connection and iPhoto opens on my MBP. However, a window then opens that says "3 photos have been found in the iPhoto Library that were not imported. Would you like to import them? No Yes".
If I click YES, a window opens that says "Unreadable Files: 3 The following files could not be imported (they may be an unrecognized file type or the files may not contain valid data)." The 3 files listed are actually the same .NEF file listed 3 times (/Users/rbmartiniv/Pictures/Photo Library Recovered Photos_12/DSC_6970.NEV). My only option then is to click on "OK". An empty iPhoto page opens for "Robert Martin's iPhone".
If I click NO when asked if I want to import the 3 photos, a window opens that reads "The photos have been placed in the folder /Users/rbmartiniv/iPhoto Library Recovered Photos_xx." I click "OK" and I'm back at the empty iPhoto page.
I can open the directory referred to and delete the"Recovered Photos" but the same thing happens the next time I connect the iPhone to the MBP. If I don't delete the recovered photo folders, they will keep increasing in number.
How can I stop this?
