    Automate transferring of pictures and videos from memory card


    Is there a way to automatically move the files from these paths every time a drive is connected (it's an SD memory card in a USB card reader)? There's a specific folder I'd like to automatically move them too on my HDD. I'm not sure that the drive letter (J) stays the same though.

    J:\PRIVATE\AVCHD\BDMV\STREAM

    J:\DCIM

    See if running this command helps a little
    Code:
    Copy-Item "J:\PRIVATE\AVCHD\BDMV\STREAM" -Destination "J:\DCIM" -Recurse

    Automatically... there used to be a way to do this with editions of Windows to Win 7, using Autorun.inf files. However I believe that to have been removed for security reasons. E.g.

    "Windows 8 does not have a autorun on usb for security reasons. But there is a workaround in this article. You need to separate the usb into two partitions, and make Windows believe one is a CDROM. This will bypass the security on windows."

    Otherwise I suppose you could write a script which detects the insertion of your device, then takes the appropriate action.
