Windows 7: re-import media from sd?

re-import media from sd?

I found 4 duplicates of every picture / video in explorer that was imported from my camera's sd card.

I deleted them all from my pc. The I re-ran the rebuild index option. It appears to finish. Emptied recycle bin prior. Rebooted pc.

Inserted SD card and still getting "no new pictures or videos to import" message.

Anyone?

Are you using a card reader or connecting the camera to the PC? Card readers are much more reliable than the camera - PC connection.

I use a multi-card reader and have never had any problems. But I always copy the files from the card to a disk folder using Win Explorer first before doing anything with them. Are you importing directly from the card into some software? If you are, the problem is probably there. I use Lightroom but when I import it is from a folder in my harddrives.

Ahh! The autoplay thing. Well, all I can say is that I turn it all off as I find it annoying. Frankly I don't want some strange critter telling me when and what I should do with my stuff . I just copy my stuff over manually when I get back from shooting. From the looks of things, looks like you'd be wise to do likewise :).

Well the auto play nicely creates the folders per your request: tag and date by picture dates. Doing this manually for hundreds of pics and vids is not an option

First question. Are the pictures still on the SD card?

Presuming they are, it would appear as though those same pictures are saved somewhere on your PC. :) Do a search and see if you can find them anywhere.

I tend to agree with this thought.

I am using the default "auto play" option to import to the PC. Its default built in Explorer, not some 3rd party software. I think I made this clear by now.

Yes, the pictures are on the card, of course.

I searched for a few file names on the entire C drive..no match found.
