Capturing The Date/time Stamp From Mini Dv Tape

Question

I've read that Roxio products (and most others) are unable to "copy" or "capture" the date and time stamp from DV video into the the saved video file. I've read that this has frustrated many, many people. This frustration started many years ago. Does anyone know if any transfer/capture software can do this at this point in time? I am appalled that with the literally millions of people who used DV cams and the millions of video files that have been transferred to .dv, .mov, mpeg4, etc the software writers have not added a simple feature that most people want on their archived footage. I use Toast 12, and tried lifeflix today, neither captures what I see on my camera when importing. Thanks - frustrated to madness in Minneapolis :)

My best guess is that the date/time that appears when viewed on the camera is not transferred by the camera as part of the digital video stream. I know I've captured that when doing an analog to digital capture using my standalone DVD recorder but never noticed if it appeared when doing the DV direct transfer.
