I am Vinod. I will try my best to help you resolve this issue.

Could you please explain your issue a bit more? What happens when you try to import - is there any error message?

Thank You

No error message, just gets stuck on a photo. Example, it will say importing 448 of 455 and just gets stuck without advancing to the next one. Tried waiting but wont budge. Restarted iPhoto and does the same thing. It doesnt always stop on the same photo though so not sure whats p.

Thank you, Tony.

Instead of trying to import everything at the same time, have you tried importing selected photos (for example, 10 at a time)?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I have not. That seems a bit tedious since I have 440 to do but will try.

Expert:  Vinod Menon replied 4 years ago.
I understand it is tedious. Sometimes, certain photos might be faulty on the iphone and they may not be read correctly by the iphoto. So if that is the case, importing some at a time would help us identify the faulty ones.

let's try importing, say 25-50 at a time. let's see.
