Is the thing you try to import really an existing Eclipse project (does
it have a .project file)? If not, you have several choices:

1) Create a new project in Eclipse and link to the folder (uncheck 'Use
default location').
2) Create a new project and then import the folder contents into the
Eclipse project.

Note that detailed explanation of these options (and others) can be
found in the Eclipse Help. From Help Contents, navigate to:
> Java development user guide
