Thanks JHBrandt for the suggestion. As a result I explored Attribute Magic's Free, Standard, and Pro versions. I found that the Pro has a batch mode and in some cases it can extract from the filename the date/time and put that in the file's date/time attribute. But, no matter what I tired, I could not get it to recognize the date/time pattern in the file names produced by the Homeworx. For example an actual recording I had on the Homeworx was "KING-HD-12282013-1932.mts". (All Attribute Magic versions can be used to manually change the file's date/time attribute.)
However, I then searched the web and found an excellent freeware that is very flexible and can do the exact job automatically/batch. It is called "Advanced Renamer" and it can change Filename, Timestamp, and much more. Using the instructions at http://www.advancedrenamer.com/user_guide/method_timestamp
and a Pattern I came up with of < Month >< Day >< Year >-< Hour >< Min > I was able to bulk change every one of the recordings on the Homeworx folder/directory so their Modified and Created and Accessed dates match the date/times imbedded in the Homeworx produced filenames. So in the above recording it changed the file's date/time attribute to "12/28/2013 7:32pm". AdvancedRenamer asks "Please donate if you like the software." (For which it provides various ways to do so.) I am planning on making such a donation. The developer's Advanced Renamer main page is at http://www.advancedrenamer.com/
. CNET gave it an "Outstanding" at http://download.cnet.com/Advanced-Renamer/3000-2248_4-10433959.html
, but looks like CNET Download version is 1 month older than the version at the developer's main page.
Please note: Regarding < Month >< Day >< Year >-< Hour >< Min >, if you use it you will need to remove the space after each "<" and before each ">". I could not save it as such in this post.Edited by seattlemark - 12/30/13 at 12:38am
