I shot about 35 images on my new N5100. Turned off the camera, ejected card, inserted it into the SD slot on my Dell 3014 monitor. About 3/4's of the images turned up in the Aperture import window. Put the card back into the camera, cabled the camera into place, and everything was there.

This bugs me because I want to share this camera with my daughter, and I thought the simplest trick was to hand her her own SD card and a reader for her laptop, so she wouldn't have to plug the camera into her computer.

Am I missing something?

Have you copied the images directly off the card to your hard drive and used Finder to see if they're all there and show a preview? It's possible that your card has a fault in it causing this. – John Cavan Jun 16 '13 at 14:21
No ... when they were all there as seen through the camera cable I stopped and posted this question. It's a brand-new card, btw. I'll try more experiments. – bmargulies Jun 16 '13 at 14:27
New card doesn't mean no fault in it. However, it could also be the card reader itself. Either way, having a look from Finder rather than Aperture is probably a good idea. – John Cavan Jun 16 '13 at 14:28
This happened to me one: perhaps some of the images were in JPG and some in RAW, and your import only selected either of these...? – Jack Mar 2 '14 at 13:52
