Dear Sir:

In Lightroom "rejected" is an internal tag, not a rating; and Lightroom doesn't pick this tag from XMP sidecar files.
In FastRawViewer displayed files can be filtered using label and ratings combinations, please have a look at
After that you can simply select all files that passed the filter (Ctrl-A, or Cmd-A, if on a Mac), and copy or move those files only to a destination of your choosing.
To copy a group of selected files, right-click on any of the selected files in the Filmstrip or in the Grid, and choose “Copy to...”. For more details please look at “Actions on marked/selected files” on page 53 of the Manual.

Lightroom imports whole folders, and there is no way to force it to import files selectively from a folder. However, you may instruct Lightroom not to import from subfolders, unchecking "include subfolders" in Import dialogue.
One way to use this subfolder import control to an advantage is to perform a reject operation in FastRawViewer. This moves the unwanted files to a subfolder named _Rejected (by default, it is created inside the folder you are browsing, shortcut for reject operation is Ctrl+Shift+Del or, for Mac, ⇧⌘⌫ ). Moving files to _Rejected subfolder doesn't delete them – you can always restore all or some of them into the main folder and after you made sure that _Rejected subfolder contains only those files you definitely not going to keep, you can Files → clear Rejected folder. This operation move rejected files to the trash bin, so you still have an option to restore them.
For your convenience, FastRawViewer Manual comes with the installation (main Menu - Help - "PDF Manual") and is fully searchable. You can also download it separately in higher resolution from - direct link is
