    When importing photos I can no longer select folder


    When importing photos I turn on camera (iphone 6s) and comp. Connect them. The Photos app goes through the photos and finds those not already imported. Finds them, asks 'continue' or 'cancel'. I choose continue. Then another screen pops up, tells where they'll be or if I'll 'change where they're imported'. I choose 'change....'. Another screen opens with choices of which folders are available. I choose one then click 'Add this folder...'. This screen disappears then goes back to where the pictures will be. For months, the new choice would be named and the choice to import or cancel. For the last 2 weeks the new choice is not there, just the original location. And then all photo related screens disappear after about 2 seconds. I've chosen 'import' (even to import them where I don't want them) but nothing. Still disappearing screens. So I have to start over. Disconnect phone, connect it and start over. Let app go through it's process, choose 'continue', then choose 'import' because it'll just be more of the same if I don't put them where I don't want them. Any help? Thanks, Mike

    :)

    Problem with importing photos from my HTC Trophy.

    I can't import photos from HTC Trophy to my Mac via the Windows Phone 7 Connector. I select all the photos I want to import in the "Browse Device" and than I press the "Import Selected Items" button. The items start to appear in my Photos folder but when
    the import is finished they suddenly disappear. How can I import my photos via the USB cable without facing problems like this ?

    Photos app - Windows 10

    For unknown reasons, I can no longer import pictures from iPhone or other devices to a destination of my choice using the photo app. When I first started using this app with Windows 10, I could change the import location folder as directed in the app. Then
    it just stopped working. If I now attempt to change the location for new imports, the app crashes, and kicks me out.

    I can recover the photos from that specific folder and then move them around, but this is a pain.

    Any suggestions.

    When importing photos I can no longer select folder

    I find it far quicker to remove the memory card from the camera and read it directly on the PC using a USB card reader. Then just use copy and paste to copy the photos to a folder of your choice. Your phone once connected should appear as an external disk under This PC from where you can copy and paste photos to where you want.
