iPhoto import issue

Every time I open up iPhoto I receive the following message: “3 photos have been found in the iPhoto Library that were not imported. Would you like to import them?” If I choose no, a new folder is created in my pictures folder “iPhoto Recovered Photos” nothing is ever in these new folders. If I choose to import into iPhoto an event is created with nothing in it. Make It Stop!!! What can I do to end the madness?

    Try this: Quit iPhoto.
    Find you iPhoto Library (usually in the Pictures folder). Right+click it and “Show Package Contents.”
    Look for the folder “Import.” Trash it. Close the window.
    Try running iPhoto again. Did that fix it?

      Hi. I’ve searched every forum, and they all say the same thing. My only problem is …. there is no frigging “import” folder – the list goes from “iLife shared” straight into “info.plist”. Really hoping you have some sage advice – it’s driving me crazy :)

        So it sounds like you have a different problem. Are you getting an error message? If so, what?
