My apologies if this question does not wholly fit this forum, but I have posted two requests for help on the viPhone list over the last few months, and I have had no replies.
I know there's a way to copy pictures from an iDevice to a Windows machine via Windows Explorer. As many of
you know, the photos folder is one of the few places on an iOS device readable by
Windows. After I plug the iPhone into a USB port, I open Windows Explorer and drill down to my iPhone. After that, I can locate the crypticly-named folder inside the "DCIM" folder, and I can open each photo successfully. I can also copy the contents of the folder to the clipboard. However, when I try to paste the files into a folder, no files are copied. I know the "Paste" operation is allowed because my screen reader does not announce it on the Edit" menu as being disabled. Can anyone imagine why the files are not being copied? I know I can open "My Computer" and right-click on the iPhone and then import the photos, but my question relates only to the method that uses access to the "DCIM" folder.
Thank you for all help.
