Change photo files dates

 New Guy -

I have a lot of photos that have been copied from cameras to my computer. (The computer is running Windows server in a mixed network.) The picture taken date is correct in the Windows properties display (file properties / summary / advanced) but the file created date is the date the file was copied to the computer. I would like to change the file created datetime stamp to mirror the photo taken date from the properties display.

Is there some way (program or script) to do this on a mass basis?

Windows or Mac? Your Configuration data says Mac OS but you posted in the Windows forum??
Whatever OS works best. It is a mixed OS environment - I was on a Mac at the time I posted the help request. The file server is Windows, photo editing is done with a Mac, Unix is available if needed for scripting.
