I am new to Mac. Recently purchased MacBook Pro and imported all of my old photos into iPhoto. After importing, I received the following message:
"50 photos have been found in the iPhoto Library that were not imported."
It then asks me if I would like to import them. The first time this happened, I said yes, and then it listed all of the files and said they were unreadable. The next time I opened iPhoto, I got the same message. This time I said no. I then got the following message:
"The photos have been placed in the folder /Users/username/Pictures/iPhoto Library Recovered Photos."
I cannot seem to delete these unreadable files. Each time I open iPhoto I get the same message. If I continue to answer NO, I get the same message about being placed in Recovered Photos_1,2,3...etc. It keeps adding a new sequential recovered photos file.
Can anyone tell me how to delete these files out of the library so I don't get this same question each time I open iPhoto?
Thanks a bunch for your expertise.
