Wife & I both have same experience on our seperate pc's & I believe it to be a new problem created by the spread of iPhone camera phones?
In pour the family fotos as attachments to Outlook Express messages. Normally we simply click on Save and job done (saved to folder called <Dump> from whence they can be extracted later)
But now, and it happens a lot, Windows XP informs us that these file names/numbers already exist and asks do we wish to overwrite them? I have not been able to change the file names/numbers at this stage....
So I now have to create a special one-off folder and a new route for the Save. Afterwards, when saved, I can change the file id's, it is all awfully tedious and in Ye Olden Dayes it didn't have to be done. Is the fault ours? What is the answer?
Should the owners of these camera phones have their settings changed to fully-incremental numbering? If that is the way to go can the average camera-phone owner comprehend such?
