I'm downloading photos&videos from a Canon Powershot into Photoshop Elements Organizer 10 on OS X. I want the files to be copied into subfolders named after the [shot date], which worked fine when I used PSE8 on Windows.

With PSE10 on OS X the subfolder names seem to be somewhat random for JPEG files: "1913 03 15", "1969 12 31", "1970 02 03", "1970 02 09", "1975 10 04", ... "2026 01 17". The AVI files are all correctly stored in a subfolder named "2011 11 05".

Interestingly, the dates displayed for each photo in the organizer is correct, it is just the subfolder name that is not created correctly.
