Hello all-

I have a question that may be, or may not be, simple to answer.

I'm a photographer and often work on location with my laptop (Powerbook). If I save a folder with all the pictures on a Compact Flash card or thumb drive to move to my home computer, when I move it to my home computer (G4 running 10.3.9), the date created changes to December 31, 1903 @ 7:00PM.

I can use date modified, but if I ever go back and do anything with just one picture the folder is then out of order from when I shot the assignment. Date created is really the best way for me to keep in chronological order.

Any idea why the date flips during transfer? Both date & time are correct on each computer. The folder says the correct date created if I create a folder and check the info, but once I transfer it to a flash card and over to the other computer, there's the 1903 date again.

Any ideas?
QUOTE Thanks

Reading that, it looks like I may loose valuable information. What am I going to loose, or what steps do I need to take to prevent information lose?
