10 Appendix
• About Folder and File Names
Your camera automatically creates specific directory of folders in the
internal memory 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.
86
Polaroid t1031 Digital Camera User Guide
www.polaroid.com
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 79.
• Plug in a new memory card.
NOTE:
Do not change the folder and file names in the memory card using your PC. It
may be unale to playback the data using the camera.
