    Let me explain my situation. Every now and then when something unfortunate happens I have to do a restore as new phone. I want to keep the pictures in my camera roll so I access the phone as a camera copy the picture and put them in a folder called camera roll. The thing is it always labels the pictures img_1, img_2 ...etc and so if I repeat this process more than once it just copies over the old pictures.

    Is there a way around this or maybe some way to make the file the date it was taken? I know my razr did it just wondering if the iphone can. Btw im on windows if that makes a difference. Thanks

    Where bunnies are welcome.
    Just make a new folder and call it camera roll 2 or camera roll copy. That's about all you can do.

    If you get a photo managing/organizing program, they usually have a file renaming/renumbering function. So you can temporarily copy the files to another folder, renumber them, then move them into your main iphone pics folder.

    just date your pictures inside a folder inside the Camera Roll folder

    C:My documents/Camera Roll/10_10_2009 (usualy the date you imported them

    thats what my computer does if i go through the automatic picture import process thingy. except it doesnt make a camera roll folder it just puts it in my pictures folder.
