Scanner and Camera Wizard no longer creates folder automatically #

Windows XP's Scanner and Camera Wizard normally creates a new folder with the same name you enter for the group of pictures. Sometimes that behavior mysteriously stops working, and the photos are simply dumped loosely into the My Pictures folder. Thankfully, Darryl figured out how to fix this:
  1. Run the Scanner and Camera Wizard, and enter a name for the group of pictures as usual.
  2. Click the drop down menu in the second box (labeled "Choose a place to save this group of pictures") and select the path to the new folder which will mysteriously appear.
  3. Complete the import process as normal.
  4. That's it! The default behavior is restored permanently.
