    Got a new 830, coming from a 920. Restored back up to the 830, but I noticed the camera roll is empty. I wanted my camera roll from my 920 to carry onto my 830. SO I hooked em both up to my PC and manually moved everything over. It worked, but all the videos and panoramas and blinks (everything except regular pics) are not sorted by date properly. Instead, they just show up under today's date. I'm wondering and hoping there is a better way to transfer the camera roll when moving to a new device. Help anyone??

    Take one photo with your new phone.. Folders will be created.. Copy old pics to that folder done...

    i think images in the camera roll folder have filenames according to dates they were taken

    as long as your images have those default filenames, it doesnt matter how theyre arranged in your camera roll folder or maybe you need to refresh your system so those filenames will reflect to your image arrangements in your folder(?)

    Yah that worked for all of my regular photos. But all videos and panoramas and blinks are not sorted by date in the camera roll on the new phone. They all show up under today's date, like I took all those today. Also, I copied my saved photos to my saved photos folder on the new phone and same thing, they all show up under today's date, but on my old phone, they were sorted by date taken, even if I saved tyem to my phone at a later date..

    I wondered about the same thing but ended up not transferring my photos when I went from a 920 to an 830.

    Have you tried hooking it up to a PC and manually changing the properties of a few videos on the phone?

    That's strange.. I guess it will sort out automatically.. I have done the same thing but it is sorted according to date

    That's the way it stores them... Everytime I move videos from old backup to the phone it sorts them in the same way... I don't think there is something you can do...
