Import function for WIA incompatible DEVICEs

Post by Discoverer » Wed Dec 13, 2006 2:21 pm

At first please excuse my English. That is a great program! Thank you!

Perhaps you will be able to integrate an import function for WIA incompatible DEVICEs according to the following pattern:

Principle:
- Shift files from folder A to folder B e.g. ones USB AutoConnect (STORAGE class) DEVICE
- Provide here self definable folder hierarchy from EXIF metadata for each file, similarly batch Rename - > name Template >> INSERTs… e.g. C:\%Y\%m%M%Y\%d%m%Y
- rename each file to self definable file names from EXIF meta data, similarly batch Rename - > name Template >> INSERTs…

Many thanks!

I think he means devices that use something other that WIA or TWAIN to connect. If I'm reading his post coorrectly ("- Shift files from folder A to folder B e.g. ones USB AutoConnect (STORAGE class) DEVICE ") he's talking about cameras that connect as an additional drive instead of as a WIA or TWAIN device.

Discoverer-> All you have to do is "Open" the file, just like it were in a folder on a local drive instead of a removeable one.

Incompatible WIA device means device which are not supported by WIA e.g. in Windows XP or ME. The manufacturer did not provide the WIA-device-driver and will not provide them in the future.

http://support.microsoft.com/default.as ... ;en;293168

I like (and sure many others too) to import fast and quick images and movies from a not supported digitalcamera to HDD. The camera provided a invariant folder structure. And now independently shifts Xnview the images and movies into folders generated by the „date taken“. Now it forms a system of order. I hope to get one's ideas across.
