FILE MANAGEMENT
The file management capabilities of the camera make it easy
to keep track of images. You can protect files against deletion, and even use its DPOF feature to specify images for
printing.
Each folder can hold files numbered up to 9,999.
Trying to store the 10,000th file in a folder causes the next
serially numbered folder to be created. Folder names are
generated as shown below.
Example: Name of the 26th file
Folders

USING A MEMORY CARD
USING A MEMORY CARD
You can expand the storage capabilities of your camera by
using a commercially available memory card (SD memory
card or MultiMedia Card). You can also copy files from builtin flash memory to a memory card and from a memory card
to flash memory.
IMPORTANT!
• Make sure you turn off the camera before inserting or
removing a memory card.
• Be sure to orient the card correctly when inserting it.
Never try to force a memory card into the slot when
you feel resistance.
• See the instructions that come with the memory card
for information about how to use it.
• Though the camera also supports use of an MMC
(MultiMediaCard) in place of an SD memory card, the
data processing speed in the case of an MMC is much
slower than that for an SD memory card. Because of
this, we recommend that you choose an SD memory
card whenever possible.
• SD memory cards have a write protect switch, which
you can use to protect against accidental deletion of
image data. Note, however, if you write protect an SD
memory card, you must remove write protection
whenever you want to record to it, format it, or delete
any of its files.
• Normally, files are stored in built-in flash memory. When
you insert a memory card, however, the camera automatically stores files to the card.
• Note that you cannot save files to built-in memory while a
memory card is installed in the camera.
74
USING A MEMORY CARD
IMPORTANT!
Using a Memory Card
• Never insert any other object besides a memory card
into the camera’s card slot. Doing so creates the risk
of damage to the camera and card.
• If you are not using a memory card, be sure to insert
the dummy card into this slot to protect against dust
and damage.
• The dummy card is intended for use with this camera
only. Never insert it into the card slot of any other type
of device.
• Should water or any foreign object ever get into the
card slot, immediately turn off the camera, remove the
battery, and contact your dealer or nearest CASIO
authorized service provider.
• Never remove a card from the camera while the operation/flash charge lamp is flashing. Doing so can
cause the files save operation to fail, and even damage the memory card.
To insert a memory card into the camera
1. Making sure that the
contacts of the memory
card are facing towards
the top of the camera,
carefully insert the card
into the slot as far as it
will go.
Contacts
To remove a memory card from the camera
1. Press the memory card
into the camera and then
release it. This will cause
the card to come part way
out of the camera.
2. Pull the memory card out
of the slot.
75
USING A MEMORY CARD
Formatting a Memory Card
1. Load the memory card into the camera.
Formatting a memory card deletes any data already stored
on it.
2. Turn on the camera. Next, enter the REC mode
or PLAY mode and press MENU.
IMPORTANT!
3. Select the “Set Up” tab, select “Format”, and
• Be sure to use the camera to format a memory card.
Formatting a memory card on a computer and then
using it in the camera can slow down data processing
by the camera. In the case of an SD card, formatting
on a computer can result in non-conformity with the
SD format, causing problems with compatibility, operation, etc.
• Note that data deleted by a memory card format operation cannot be recovered. Check to make sure you
do not need any of the data on the memory card before you format it.
• Formatting a memory card that contains files deletes
all the files, even those that are protected (page 65).

4. Rock the controller up or down to select
“Format”, and then click.
• To exit the format operation without formatting, select

76
USING A MEMORY CARD
Memory Card Precautions
Copying Files
• Use only an SD memory card or a MultiMediaCard with this
camera. Proper operation is not guaranteed when any
other type of card is used.
• Electrostatic charge, electrical noise, and other phenomena can cause data to become corrupted or even lost. Always make sure that you always back up important data on
other media (MO disc, computer hard disk, etc.)
• If a memory card starts to behave abnormally, you can restore normal operation by reformatting it. However, we recommend that you always take along more than one
memory card whenever using the camera far away from
the home or office.
• We recommend that you format a memory card before using it for the first time after purchasing it, or whenever the
card you are using seems to be the cause of abnormal images.
• Before starting a format operation, check to make sure that
the battery is fully charged. Power interruption during the
format operation can result in improper formatting, and
even damage the memory card and make it unusable.
Use the procedures below to copy files between built-in
memory and a memory card.

The procedures in this section describe how to transfer images from the camera to your computer using a memory
card.
Windows 2000
Click card services in the task tray on your computer screen,
and disable the drive number assigned to the camera. Next,
turn off the camera, and then remove the camera from the
USB cradle.
Using a Computer with a Built-in SD Memory Card Slot
Insert the SD memory card directly into the slot.
Using a Computer with a Built-in PC Card Slot
Use a commercially available PC card adapter (for an SD
memory card/MMC). For full details, see the user documentation that comes with the PC card adapter and your computer.

USING THE CAMERA WITH A COMPUTER
Using a Commercially Available SD Memory Card
Reader/Writer
See the user documentation that comes with the SD memory
card reader/writer for details about how to use it.
Memory Data
Images recorded with this camera and other data are stored
in memory using DCF (Design Rule for Camera File System)
protocol. DCF protocol is designed to make it easier to exchange image and other data between digital cameras and
other devices.
■ DCF Protocol
DCF devices (digital cameras, printers, etc.) can exchange
images with each other. DCF protocol defines camera format
for image file data and the directory structure for camera
memory, so images can be viewed using another
manufacturer’s DCF camera or printed on a DCF printer.
Using a Commercially Available PC Card Reader/Writer
and PC Card Adapter (for SD Memory Cards and MMCs)
See the user documentation that comes with the PC card
reader/writer and PC card adapter (for an SD memory card/
MMC) for details about how to use them.

USING THE CAMERA WITH A COMPUTER
Image Files Supported by the Camera
Built-in Memory and Memory Card
Precautions
• Image files recorded with the CASIO EX-S1/EX-M1 Digital
Camera
• DCF protocol image files
• Note that the folder named “DCIM” is the parent (top) folder
of all the files in memory. When transferring memory contents to a hard disk, MO disk, or other external storage,
treat all the contents inside a DCIM folder as a set and always keep them together. You can change the name of the
DCIM folder on your computer. Changing the name to a
date is a good way to keep track of multiple DCIM folders.
However, be sure you change the name of the DCIM folder
back to “DCIM” before you copy it back to memory for playback on the camera. The camera does not recognize any
folder name other than DCIM.
• We also strongly recommend that after transferring data
from memory to other external storage that you reformat
memory and delete its contents before using it to store
more files. Remember that formatting memory deletes all
of its contents. Check to make sure that you no longer need
any of the files in memory before you format it.
Certain DCF functions may not be supported. When displaying an image recorded on another camera model, it may take
a long time for the image to appear on the display.
