Default Date/time stamp issue when transferring vids/pics to computer. Help please.

Hi, i am having an issue when transferring my vids/pics from my Z2 to my PC.

On all my previous phones when transferring media to my PC it would be copied and labelled with a date stamp followed by a picture number- an example being 2014-01-13- 0123. This has always made organising and finding my pics/vids in there relavent folders an eay task.

The problem i am now faced with is when i transfer pics/vids from my Z2. The pictures are stamped with DSC_0001 for example and the videos with MOV_0001. This means when on my PC i have to examine each file individually to find out its date and time of origin.

Even more of an headache is everytime i have transferred files from my Z2 and then take more pics/vids and then try to transfer them to my PC the computer will not allow transfer as the stamp on the file i am transferring from my Z2 eg - DSC_0001 is already present on the PC from a previous transfer. This means i have to rename all the PC files first.

I hope this makes sense and hopefully there is an easy fix.

I am new to Android and overall i am very happy with the operating system, being a massive improvement generally over my previous phones. Fingers crossed this is down to my lack of knowledge and just involves a settings change somewhere.

Thanks in advance for any help.

When recording Videos or taking pictures, sony devices uses the univertal method of time stamping media,

It adds it to the properties of the file

There is no fix for such as far as i currently know, you kinda have to deal with this method of time stamping,

On your pc you can see this by right clicking on a video and clicking properties

Thank you for the reply, i think we may have crossed wires. The problem i am having is that the files on my sony Z2 are being labelled with numbers not dates - i.e DSC_0001 - 2/3/4/ etc for pics and MOV_0001 - 2/3/4/ etc for movies. When i transfer from my phone to the PC the process begins again from 0001 on my phone. Further transfers then tell me the file already exists on my PC and would i like to replace the original file with the new one.

If the phones was naming the pics/vids with the date and time or not reverting back to 0001 when transferred to my PC my problem would be solved.

Thanks again.
