Directory of miscellaneous jpegs that I want to bring into Aperture to keyword and export at web resolutions.

So they are on /Volumes/Bugkiller/temppix

When I go to import them, the directory appears blank.

Permissions:

ls -l@ shows neither the directory nor the files with any extended attributes.

copying a file from NikonTransfer to Temppix, and the new file is not visible.

Navigating to this location in Finder shows the files.

A simple photo browser iSmartPhoto shows the files.

What am I missing?

Aperture can't see ".JPG" but can see ".jpg" and ".jpeg". I just went through a similar arduous process, name changing ".JPG" to ".jpg" and then re-importing hundreds of files; Aperture was then able to see them.

Capture 1 Pro8 was able to see both extensions; as I just wasted an hour, this has pushed me over the edge to abandon Aperture forever, which hurts, as I have used it professionally for many years. I recently updated to El Capitan, too, and this squirrelly behaviour re. these extensions started then.
