My video has no date of 1/1/1601 but when I try to change the date to match that of the video that's what I get.

Even if my videos have a 'date taken', I get the same 1/1/1601 date when trying to match with the movie file date with the date in the file system of Windows.

Generally, I don't see the point of that option, which is to replace a missing or wrong 'date taken' by a totally irrelevant 'creation date' in your file system.
If the idea is to use the history of the import date into your computer, I'd rather use the 'import batch' sort order in the organizer. Otherwise, just like for scans, I have not other choice than entering the supposed 'date taken' manually.
