Windows 7: import pictures from camera - wrong date

26 Oct 2009   #1

import pictures from camera - wrong date

I have official W7 installed (Home Premium). Anytime I insert my SD card from my digital camera, it asks to import new pictures. I click yes and the problem is that it imports the pictures, labeling the folder by date - one day ahead of the actual photos' dates.


October 24th pics are being organized in 2009-10-25 folder instead of 2009-10-24. Same thing happened the past 2 days I imported pictures. Odd enough, I just reloaded W7 a few days ago and it started happening after the reload. Prior to the reload it used to work perfectly fine, organizing by proper date of actual photos. The photos are indeed the 24th, not 25th and same for prior imported pictures.

Here's the weird thing, in Pictures library the photos are organized correctly by date (month). But, in the users/pictures folder via C: folder it is messing up

Any ideas?

You probably checked this already, but are you sure that Windows 7 has the correct date set in the system clock?

In addition, is the date set correctly on your camera? If using the 12H system, are you sure that you aren't 12 hours out?

Camera date is fine and matches PC date as well.

All the problems of Libraries can be caused by a bad indexing database. You have to go to indexing options and rebuild the indexing database.
