iPhoto Import Issue - Unreadable Files
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.
I have the EXACT same issue, even the number of unreadable files is the same, 50.
very annoying to go through this every time i open iphoto.
i had some duplicate files of all my images in other folders - i did not want to do this, but i deleted all of them. still no help, i get the unreadable 50 every time.
any help with this would be much appreciated.
next step would be to backup and delete every photo on my imac, which would be a major pain to do with some 3000+ images.
update - further googling found a thread on MacRumors forums with a post by Rontheancient with a fix that worked like a charm for me.

thanks very much rontheancient
Whenever I get this, and when I know that the photo is readable by other software, I load the photos into a photo edit program outside of iPhoto and fool the program into thinking you have changed it - by rotating 360 degrees for example - then save it. Invariably, iPhoto will then import it without a problem.
