Appendix

About Folder and File Names

Your camera automatically creates specific directory of folders in the internal memory cards to organize captured images, videos and audio files.

Folder Structure

Your camera creates three directory names:

DICAM. All captured images, videos and audio files are stored in this folder except for files recorded using the Auction or YouTube mode.

_AUCT. Captured images using the Auction mode are saved in this folder.

_UTUBE. Captured videos using the YouTube mode are saved in this folder.

Folder names begin with a 3-digit number from 100 to 999 and followed by “DICAM” or “_AUCT” or “_UTUBE”. Each folder holds up to 9999 files.

If new files are saved, a new folder named in sequence will be automatically created.

File Naming

File names begin with “DSCI” and followed by a 4-digit number that increases in sequence. File numbering starts from 0001 when a new folder is created.

If the highest folder number is 999 and the highest file number exceeds 9999, the camera will display the warning message “Folder cannot be created.” When this happens, try one of the following ways:

• Reset the file number. See “Setting File Numbering” on page 77

• Plug in a new memory card.

Warning

Do not change the folder and file names in the memory card using your PC. It may be unable to playback the data using the camera.
