    I'm having trouble changing the Folder and File settings.
    In PLAYBACK, the numbers in the upper right corner appear as 100-001, 100-002, 100-003, etc etc etc.
    I want them to be sequential by date ie: 001-1225, 002-1225, 003-1225 etc.
    Manual tells me to go to set-up menu, then down to Folder name, then select date option. Have done that but folder stays in standard format.
    Anyone have any suggestions???:confused:

    You might need to re-format the memory card. Existing folders on the camera may be keeping the camera from creating the new folder. Just make sure that you get all the images off before you reformat!

    Hi Ben
    Thanks for the info, but it is something that I had already tried, to no avail.
    In the meantime, I have discovered at least ONE thing.........the folder number appears to be changing by the day. Stuff I shot yesterday was 100-001, 100-002 etc. Today's shots are 101-001, 101-002 etc, so I guess that is SOME improvement. Guess I'll just have to seperate the pictures when I upload them to my computer. Just pay close attention to the FOLDER number, and the time stamp on the individual shots.

    Thanks again!
