Import error. An error occured while importing.

Do you get this unhelpful error sometimes when using Image Capture.app? The only solution I've found is to choose a different destination directory for the imported files, then try again.

Even if your chosen destination folder is on a recognised, writable drive with enough space, this error still crops up sometimes. Another bug that's lingered around since 10.4 Tiger, so Apple's developers either aren't in the mood to fix it, or don't consider it a priority.
