Ingest Box not popping up when cards are inserted in to reader
« on: November 27, 2020, 06:57:12 AM »
Hi, Since the last PM update my ingest box no longer comes up when I insert a card into my reader. I've looked for preferences but nothing seems to work? Any thoughts would be great.

Photo Mechanic Version 6.0, build 5378 (4d1fe32)

Thanks,

-david

What OS are you running Photo Mechanic 6 on?

I'm running into the same issue. I plug in my SD card in my 2013 MacBook Pro's built-in card reader, and the ingest dialog does not open automatically even though I have it set to do that.

I just upgraded to MacOS 11.1. I'm on Photo Mechanic Version 6.0, build 5404 (e13fb4f). Everything worked fine prior to the upgrade to MacOS 11.1.

Additional info: I changed my preferences to open contact sheets when a card is mounted, and that works. Switching it back to open ingest dialog does not work.

I did notice an interesting thing. I can manually open the ingest dialog and see my SD card and ingest normally. However, I don't see the card listed in the navigator. I've attached a screenshot showing my current situation.

Not sure if this is related, but it's an interesting thing I noticed happening since upgrading to Big Sur and Photo Mechanic Version 6.0, build 5404 (e13fb4f).

was this ever resolved? O don't see an answer in this thread. I have been having the same problem for a while now... just getting to the support forms about it. Running latest PM6 on macOS 11.2.3 (20D91)

Thanks,

-David
