Has anyone tried using the Batch Mode function in GDAL translate - qgis2? I can process files individually ok, in my case MODISA HDF files. But the batch mode does not seem to work. Here is my set up parametersenter image description here

After hitting OK, I get a message instantly saying that the operation is complete, but there is nothing in the Output directory or anywhere else.

Also, oddly, when I process files individually, I've got the 'Load into canvas' option ticked, but I get an error saying that this failed. Its not such a big deal because I can add it ok, but perhaps this is another bug. Any suggestions welcome. Thanks!

Forgot to say that I'm using Windows 7, qgis2.
