    Hi,
    I am using an Android 4. It does not store my photos and videos like my Droid 2 did. I want the photos and videos to be saved in order of date but, when I hook my phone up to my PC on the Android 4, it has all of the videos last in the Camera file which is in dicm. My Android 2 would keep all files in chronological order with a date being part of the filename. Is there any way to make my Android 4 save the files with date as part of the filename, and all photos and videos in chronological order?

    Thanks, John

    Not sure what an Android 4 is. Can you clarify what manufacturer and model the phone is? Also give the Android OS version such as 4.0 (IceCreamSandwich), 4.1-4.3 (JellyBean), 4.4 (KitKat).

    I am running KitKat and the only file sort options for pictures I have are:
    Time
    Type
    Name
    Size

    Your Droid 2 was probably running OS 2.2 (Froyo 2010-2011) so many things were different. That may include the file storage options.

    Thank you for your reply and please forgive me for posting my question in the totally wrong forum.
    My phone is the Droid 4 with jellybean.
    I appreciate this forum and I will post in the correct place.
    Thanks, John

    Moved to the Droid Forum.

    I do not know of a way to insert the date as part of the file name automatically. Sounds like a programming challenge.

    You might find this of interest. Apparently there has been frustration since Android updated the OS from 2.1 to 2.2 and since.....

    Wow!
    Thank you first of all for moving my question to the correct forum. Second, thank you for that link. That conversation touches on exactly what I was refering to.
    While I am disappointed that there doesnt appear to be a way to have the files named the way they were in my old Droid phone, I am grateful that you were able to find me an answer to my question.
