    I am having difficulty with the auto import function of pics and videos when connecting my iPhone to my laptop. Every time I connect, it imports recent photos and videos again into a new date folder under My Pictures folder. How can I change the default import settings? I set it up when I first connected my iPhone, but cannot find where to change those settings. The result is I have a lot of sub folders on my laptop under "my pictures" folder, making searching for these pictures cumbersome. Ideally I would like to import pics and videos from iphone to the "my pictures" root folder by pic/video name only.

    when you plug in your device (iphone) go to the "my computers setting" and look for "scanners and cameras" you will see a list of devices currently plugged in. Click on the device your trying to edit and select "view device properties" this will allow you to change your default settings to a folder and program of your choice. It took me days to figure out how to change my settings, hope this helps.
