    Hi everyone, I have a Canon IXUS 400 (aka S400). Can somebody recommend a
    good photo downloader? ZoomBrowser is ok, but I'm looking for something a
    bit more flexible, and possibly faster.

    Here is what I need in decreasing order of importance:

    * Downloads photos into separate folders for each day (like ZoomBrowser),
    but unlike ZoomBrowser, I want the folders to be named "YYYY-MM-DD - $name".

    Note that those are dashes and not underscores. Hopefully I will be prompted
    for the name of the folder. The name part actually isn't that important. I
    just want the dashes in that date format.

    * The program must be able to be run, download all new photos from the
    camera automatically, and depending on the options set, format the card.
    Erasing each photo takes longer than a format.

    * Be fast to load and run, plus light on memory requirements

    * Be small

    * Be free.

    The first two characteristics are extremely important. By the way, I don't
    need the program to do anythign else, much less waste CPU time doing it.
    Things like thumbnails are not needed. This is where zoombrowser fails. I
    also don't want it creating .info files everywhere.

    Thanks everyone.

    Ok, it's not 100% perfect, but as far as features go, it has almost
    everything I need.
