Windows 7: re-import media from sd?

27 Jun 2010   #11

7 Home Premium 64bit

No answer huh? I have the same question as i want to re-import so all the pictures can mbe renamed and retaged like all the others. OF course there is 3rd party programs out there that will do and bravo to all you who want to "do it all on my own because you don't like autoplay", but that isn't the problem here. The question is, how can I re-import the pictures so I can change the settings and the tag names to go a specific place without having to use a program like File Ranamer and manually move them all over. We're not talking 2 picutes here, there are many. I put the card in and it says: "No New Picuress" like the other user.

go to folder options by typing folder on the search screen
Then go to view on folder options
on advanced setting change dont show hidden files to Show hidden files and press apply
go to user[whatever its call] > AppData > Local > Microsoft > Photo Acquisition
Then delete the file thats read as PreviouslyAcquired or you can rename it as PreviouslyAcquired.old
And thats it, import your picture againt by inserting you card or loading picture and video import
Remember to put back your folder option as default.
This instruction work on Windows 7, but with some changed may work on xp, good luck.

I'm experiencing the same problem, my computer has a built-in card reader. I initially imported 400 +/- pictures from an SD card, went fine. I added more pictures to the SD card, imported them as a new folder, the added pictures were in random order !? Deleted both folders, also the trash-bin. Now when I attempt to import the pictures again (hoping thy'll be in order) I get the message "there are no new pictures....." !?

Thanks much for the 'fix' realboy77, I was able to re-import the pictures from the SD card ! However they do not appear (in the picture library) in the order they were scanned onto the card though they do appear in the proper order if played as a 'slide-show' on the computer. If I copy these pictures to a DVD what's the chances of them appearing in the proper order ?
