Had another photographer help me on a wedding and after working on his Canon raw files in my Adobe Photoshop CS5 (or 6) bridge, it does generate the xmp files but bridge is not recognizing them and none of my changes are saved or even processed even though the xmp files are there. I have no problem on the image I took, but I copied his raw files from his cf card onto my hard drive in a folder all their own and when processing them in either CS5 or 6 bridge, the xmp files are not recognized and none of my work is processed or saved. I reopen the same images and nothing was saved or even show that they were even processed even though the xmp files are there. I did the file association thing, cleared the cache, etc..even deleted xmp files moved the raw files to another folder to start everything all over and still nothing. Anyone have any solutions I can try?
Thanks ahead of time for all responses. I'm using Windows 7 Professional 32 or 64 bit, none of that seems to matter.

Check the date and time the photos were taken and ensure they are actually correct. If, for example, the photographer neglected to adjust his camera for Daylight Saving Time a month ago it could cause problems like you're experiencing where Bridge/ACR ignores the XMP metadata files because the photos were taken "in the future."

5/14 is almost a month ahead. See this thread - https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1271896

Well, you've identified the problem.... his computer and camera are probably in sync but since your's isn't the problem shows up with your edits.

Ok great. I guess that is it..it says date created was yesterday 4/14, that is when I copied them over from the cf card..but date modified says 5/14 and the times is the times of the wedding so I guess it is ahead of time..is there a way to batch change the date of the files? there are 295 of them.

There are several options but I would strongly suggest using ExifTool (external link). And if you are on a Windows computer you might find it easier to use the ExifToolGUI (external link)

Make sure you follow this instructions closely, ExifTool is a very powerful utility. Also test it on a few copies of your original files before committing to changing the metadata of all your originals.

Date should be irrelevant. Make sure the filename is the same other than the extension then purge the cache. If that doesn't work zip two raw and two xmp files and make them available on the thread or private to someone here via dropbox/yousendit.

Should be, but evidently it is relevant. Adobe forum (external link) and POTN thread

Interesting. Strange. My camera time is always sync'd with the computer so I've never noticed that.

yep, it is relevant. I changed the date of my computer to 5/19 and the xmp data automatically appeared and changes were put into effect... so until 5/14 I need to keep my computer date changed.

Or use software like "BulkFileChanger" to change the dates on all your files to today.

Ok I'll look for that. The others I've found are either shareware and only works on 5 files or they change all the data and you have no way to pick what you want to change.

Got it and did it and it worked great on my raw files but my jpegs still say date created 5/14..ran it several times on the jpegs and no data was changed, only worked on the raw files (sigh).. I'll have to change those one at a time manually I reckon.
