Do Not use Windows Explorer in Vista -- Looses Date

The more obvious way to import photos is simply to use Windows Explorer to copy or move them. They are just files, right? Wrong.

Windows explorer looses the date taken if the photos are just moved in the obvious way, for a Canon at least. And the Camera does not seem to have a UNC path at all. Thus not possible to script.

So need to use the easy-to-use option.

As the concept of generic files dies and every type of data becomes a special case the computer becomes ever more mysterious.
