I had this problem too when I tried to search for all files (*.*) in the DCIM folder of the IPad and copy them to windows. However, it seems to work OK when I select the folders within DCIM and copy and paste the multiple folders from the ipad to windows. (I.e. the folders within Computer\Apple iPad\Internal Storage\DCIM)
Hope this works for you too.
Having this issue too. Lightroom 4 couldn't import .PNG files, tried in Explorer....and got the error message - "0x80030001"
Did anyone else notice this only occurring with the .PNG image files? Everything else would transfer okay?
And more specifically, only the 'Screen Shots' that you took by pressing the Home Button & Power Button on your phone....?
Just a theory here...but I know that when working with hard drives and USB memory, only FAT32 format reads & writes in both Windows & Mac OS.
I'm hypothesizing the 'Format' of the memory in the iPhone is one that Windows doesn't support natively.
There are programs available to allow Windows to read from Mac formatted file systems. (Don't know them off hand. Never needed them before.) I may give it a try though.
*** If anyone else tests this theory (or already has) please let us know?
yeah! sure windows problem... neither the location nor the folder path is given in default industry standards... by APPLE DEVICE
But if I need my latest taken picture from an apple phone... one can see over more than 30 directories random named like 845OJOX or 900DZDMI ???
In those random named directories lies apples 'closed coding' following faulthy tagging and resulting in different and random again batches of photos taken.
If I do a search in windows I can find all the pictures on this apple phone and even better i'm in control to sort the way i like!
Unfortunately the apple 'faulthy tagging method' makes it impossible to communicate with any other divice about accessing...
This is a simple poor show of apple's limited object oriented filing...
The same i had from pictures taken of a holliday where i did change my phone to local time and my wife's phone not and the seperate camera had also home settings... when i imported those all together after holliday via a program called i-tunes I had to buy 3 different apps and store all these holliday pictures(8gig) seperate (problem since 16gig should be available on apples device; i had only 9gig freed by eliminating all apps possible... and needed 24gig total for apps photo database) in all the overpriced purchased apps, to finaly show those pictures time synchronized to the holliday !
How hard it can be to sort files as the user needs????
DRAMATIC POOR APPLE PERFORMANCE (i thought apple was so good with pictures and so..)
On my pc I also did import the holliday pictures from these three devices and sorted those within minutes(!!!) right to holliday time sync...
Anyway i found also a time consuming way to copy latest taken pictures in random apple maps
(i wish to select a specific time batch and drag these to new map on pc (no apple pc))
look in all the random named apple device maps and check if there is a picture belonging to the batch you need and drag these to the new map...
Something what could take from any other phone some milisecs... takes with apple devices 2 days time !!!!
Best way for taking photo's you need later on other devices than apple... take the photo's on a non apple device and save extra holliday time!
Thank you, you saved my day! When wanting to transfer my iphone photos I found the Apple had randomly stored my 5500 photos in bl--dy 500+ folders. Som folders only had a few photos in them, some had a lot. All photos were mixed date-wise so I could not find and transfer the past 6 months to my hard drive. With your work-around solution I could! Thank you thank you thank you!
