PSE 10 won't copy from phone, temp location becomes permanent

Alright guys, forgive me if this has already been answered, but I have no idea what search terms to plug in for what I'm describing.

The core of the problem is this: I have an HTC Droid Incredible phone, and when I use PSE 10 to copy my pictures down, after scanning through all of the pictures and showing me thumbnails, PSE10 tells me the file no longer exists.

So let's come back out: I can move all of the pictures to a temporary location on my hard drive using Windows Explorer, and Photoshop will import them into the catalog. However it greys out the "Copy" checkmark during the File/Folder import, so what was intended to be a temporary location becomes permanent as far as the PSE catalog is concerned. The photos are not indexed by date like they are when I import from an SD card, and we all know how unhappy PSE gets when you change the location of pictures, right?

Ultimately I need a solution to both problems -- I'll continue to take pictures with my Incredible so I need a reliable way to get them sorted from the phone into the date-sorted directories, and I now have over 100 pictures that need to be RE-sorted by date. I'd rather not have to do it manually.

Suggestions?
