Hi, All,

I have recently installed Format Factory and am very happy with it except for one thing: It stamps the wrong date and time on every converted file. I've had no response from their support e-mail. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to correct this?

Which date are you referring to. A file has three dates associated with it. Created date, modified date and accessed date. They can all be different. What format factory is probably doing is changing the creation date while leaving the accessed and/or midifed date the same or some other permutation.

Be careful though as you can have a created date that is later than the modified date. There is a perfectly logical reason for this as the created date is the date it was created on that particular computer although it may have been modified at an earlier date on another computer.

Hi, StuartS
Thank you for your reply.

Okay I converted an .flv file 30 minutes ago. The date and time here in NZ would have been 1:40pm on the 5th of February 2012
Here are the readings on the converted file:
Date Modified: 2/02/2012. 4:22pm
Date Created: 3/02/2012. 10.07pm
Date Accessed: 4/02/2012. 12.12pm
