I have been using iphoto for awhile and have just recently had this problem. Every time I open iphoto the program tells me that I have 7 photos that have yet to be imported. When I tell the program that I don't wish to import these it creates a new album called Recovered photos that I either cant open or is empty. My guess is empty since it doesn't seem to have any mass on my hard drive. One interesting anomaly is that when I say that I do want to import it gives me two empty albums instead of the one. The empty albums will also stack up on one another since the program continues to do this little glitch whether I leave the empty albums alone or not. This isn't really a program breaker for me but since I use the program quite a bit it does tend to waste my time since I have to close out the sub window every time and then delete the empty albums. Any advice would be appreciated.
