Default File transfer/copier program for Memory Cards

Hello all,

I was wondering weather it is possible to write and run a program that will take all files in one folder of an SD Card (as they are created) and transfer them to another folder on the SAME card? This needs to happen as the files are created, and not requiring being plugged into a computer. Any help on this matter is appreciated as it is needed urgently

Many thanks,
Anayar

What is the reasoning behind the need to do this. Are you trying to make two copies of each photo on the same disc or get every photo into one single photo on the memory card??????

Hey Photo5,

First off, thanks for the response...

The reason that I need to do this is that I am trying to use an Eye-Fi card in tandem with a portable scanner. The portable scanner will only scan images onto a folder called "Photo1" on the card, and the Eye-Fi card will only recognize files in the "DCIM" folder (both of these things are built int o the firmware fo the 2 products, so it is nearly impossible to change ). If I had someway of copying the files from "Photo1" to the "DCIM" folder, then I would be set. I need to find a solution to this urgently since I will be on a trip with no computer access, but will HAVE to scan some items. Any help or advice is REALLY appreciated

Cheers,
Anayar

Short of having access to an ipad or other computer lick device with a card slot in it I don't really have a solution for you. Sorry I can't be more help. One thing you may be able to do is seek out a public library or internet cafe where you cam use a computer and then transfer the images manually between folders.
