I apologize if this has been addressed before - none of the searches I've tried (here or elsewhere) found threads directly addressing the problem.
When I transfer MP4 files from SD cards to my Win10 "Videos" folder, they have recently started changing either both the recording date and time - or just the time - to the current one (and subsequent files in a multi-file transfer to future times - on the same elapsed-time interval as the original files).
Making it even weirder is that it's intermittent - sometimes files still transfer with all details remaining identical, as was traditionally the case.
This is really inconvenient, as I need the correct info for reference purposes (the files are often of bands I'm not familiar with, and I need to be able to identify them at a later time).
Can anyone explain 1) what is happening here - and 2) how to make it stop?
Thanks in advance!
Addendum: I took a file that altered when I copied it to the PC - and had been deleted from the SD card - and copied it back: it restored the original date/time data on the card, which infers to me that the correct data is being overlaid/"camouflaged" in some way on the PC. Frustrating!
