I use the Adobe Photo Downloader to transfer from my CF card to the HD. I always rename my files since I have 2 cameras. I also choose to Save Copies to another HD. The renaming pattern doesn't get applied to the copies. I then have to open Bridge to rename the copies. It would be so much easier if the renaming pattern would automatically be applied to the copies.

Thanks for any consideration in adding this feature.

I'm using CS6 now. It is the Adobe Bridge CS6 - Photo Downloader. It can be reached thru Bridge under the File/Get Photos from Camera. It lets you download from the card and is very useful. The "Save Copies To" works really good to backup the files to a separate hard drive. The "Save Copies To" doesn't apply the rename files though or the metadata. My work around is just to point Bridge to the copies folder and use the Batch Rename. The "Save Copies To" is a very handy feature which could be improved by letting the File Rename apply to the copies as well.

Thanks.
