What I do is to copy (using Windows Explorer) from the SD card to whatever folder where I want the pictures to be. That way, I have complete control over where the pictures end up. Once I have copied them, I back them up to a couple of hard disks. Finally, I import them to Lightroom Classic, do post-processing as needed, and back up again -- I am strongly in favor of using both belt and suspenders. (Murphy is a very powerful man.)

To (all versions of) Windows, the SD card is just another disk; you can treat the SD card like any other disk. On the SD card, navigate to whatever folder contains your pictures. Then copy them to wherever you want them.

I use Windows Explorer because it's convenient; a command window would work equally well.

Each folder in windows has a view that you specify. If you have the ribbon on the top of the folder, click view, then group by then date if you want them sorted by date. You can also use the sort by function to get a huge potential number of looks.

I use whatever RAW developing app to do my importing, and I use the renaming feature when I do that.

Seems the simplest way to bring stuff in, name it as I want, have copies sent to my local backup NAS, and have it all done in one step.

Why not use the tools to make your life easier?

Ye but when they load on Auto Play they all go in My Pictures as separate pictures instead of loading as a folder with the date
I haven't used that function for well over 10 or even 15 years. I tried it just now and was presented with a large number of options, multiple versions of lightroom and other editing software, windows paint, but not windows import as I thought it used to be.

So I did a search for the issue and found that the switch windows did in a recent update can cause the issue.

Chiming in late, but as a near future R5 user, I was looking at this topic. In a previous life, I was a windows administrator. I wrote this script to take files from an card card and move them to a directory with format c:\pixtemp\YYYY.MM. It then opens the directory and launches photoshop :) It's my fastest drive, so I edit from there and move later.
Save as a .bat file. Of course, your drive letter will vary.


for /f "tokens=1,2,3,4 delims=/, " %%a in ('date /t') do set strdate=%%d.%%b
md c:\pixtemp\%strdate%
md c:\pixtemp\%strdate%\jpg

for /f %%f in ('dir /s /b e:\*.cr2') DO @move /y %%f c:\pixtemp\%strdate%
for /f %%f in ('dir /s /b e:\*.jpg') DO @move /y %%f c:\pixtemp\%strdate%
for /f %%f in ('dir /s /b e:\*.mov') DO @move /y %%f c:\pixtemp\%strdate%
explorer c:\pixtemp\%strdate%
"C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop 2021\Photoshop.exe"



I do have a question...does the R5 work as a storage device, where I can assign it a drive letter when connected with USB?
