I still know now.
I had the problem that i lost the description of the pictures after copiing the albums.
So i ordered an database backup from my hoster. And at all i upgraded zenphoto in hope of a bugfix for the general copiing problem.
After creating and filling the database with the update i lost all my auto_increment attributes.
The provider didn't saved them in the backup.
So it was no zenphoto problem, but i needed to know were i can start to find the problem.
Is there a zenphoto entitiy relationsship diagramm for download?
Cause i was searching in the main files of the core to know how the database interaction with the system works.
