Hello everyone.

I am new here and it's a pleasure to make part of the Mac Forums discussions.

I have a question to you all and I hope someone will be able to help me somehow: last week I opened the iPhoto and, for my ungrateful surprise, I realized that there were only events/albums I created something like 2-3 years ago. The rest was all gone. I panicked with he possibility of losing the majority of my treasures (pics)!! Then I realized they were all stored on Finder/Pictures/iPhoto (package and contents), but the thing is: I cannot bring them back to my iPhoto events and albums. It refuses with the following message: "Unreadable Files... The photo could not be imported (this photo is in iPhoto library)"

Does anyone could help me understanding what might have happened and how to fix this?

Thank you in advance for your attention.
QUOTE Thanks
