    OK, I know Adobe Bridge is an old program and is no longer supported, but I thought I might try this forum anyway.

    I transferred a number of jpgs from an iPhone 6S to my Dell Latitude E6520 running 64 bit Win 7 Pro with i5 processor, 8 GB RAM, NVIDIA NVS 4200M video "card." The photos were transferred using a flash drive.

    I tried entering metadata into the photos using Bridge (right click on photo, click on File Info, Click on OK). On a random basis, I see "There was an error writing metadata to (file name)."

    I tried 4 different flash drives, all with the same result. I tried uploading the photos to Dropbox and then downloading to my computer - same problem. I tried to connect the iPhone directly to my computer but the computer would not recognize it.

    So, despite the age of Bridge, does anyone have any ideas on this problem? I find the randomness of the problem especially puzzling.

    I have searched this forum (and I am not sure this is the correct forum) and I have tried a number of online searches, all without success.

    Perhaps you are trying to be helpful, but I am not sure, because:

    1. My message clearly stated that I am using Win 7

    2. My message clearly stated that I am trying to enter metadata using Adobe Bridge

    3. You are clearly not familiar with Adobe Bridge because if you were you would know that that the File Info feature provides entry of IPTC data, not EXIF data.

    4. The article you referenced only allows editing of EXIF data.

    For anyone else viewing this thread, I forgot to mention in my original post that I also tried to transfer the images to my computer via email, and also did not work.

    It happens that people misread things at time. I'm sure SpywareDr merely wanted to show that you don't need to use Adobe Bridge to do what you're trying to do but of course that is on Windows 10. I don't know if the same applies to Windows 7 but in an event, it's simply a mistake on their part.
