Copying photos to CD in the order they were taken, by date.
I started vacation 4/23 and ended on 5/02. When I view the photos that were taken each day,(on a 2 gig flash card) those that were taken on 5/01 and then 5/02 are followed by those taken 4/23,24 etc.
When I try to send the pics to a CD, it does the same thing. It always puts the smallest day number first, even if that number falls much later in the picture taking sequence.
Is there a way to record to disc in the actual order taken?
Thank you very much,

Re: Copying photos to CD in the order they were taken, by...
The only way to do this is to right click on each image and rename it to the day sequence you wish
or better still simply number the with a 3 digit sequence -001 002 003 etc.,
Once you have got the hang of it it is surprising how quick you can get
So you retain the original number and put the sequence number in front like this
etc., for that day
and so on
You then have them in numerical order in daily batches

After downloading the photos to your computer then click on Date created at the top of the your picture folder. The photos will the sort by the date the photos were taken starting from the earliest date. If you click on Date created again it will sort by the latest date the photos were taken.
One way would be to use the vacation date feature. Refer to the "Recording which day of the vacation you take the picture" section of the manual (page 54 in my copy).
All current digital cameras record the date and time (and a lot more) with each image. Just about all photo cataloging/viewing/editing programs can show you this data. Depending on the program and printer, you may print the date on the picture, in the margins, or on the back.
If you need a manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/DMCFX01-MULTI.PDF
Not easily. Once the date stamp is on the picture, those pixels are the same as any other pixel. You can edit the photos using photo editing software, the same way you might replace one person's face with another's.
First, are you trying to view the photos on your camera, or is this after you've downloaded them onto your computer?
I took a look at my Cyber-Shot and it looks like it sorts photos strictly by the numbering sequence, not by date. I couldn't find a way to prioritize it to view by date in the playback menus either. Have you tried viewing them in index mode? You can do this by pushing the "Home" button while in playback mode. From there you can pick either single, index or slide show mode. If you have already tried this, do the photos still show up out of sequence?
If you are trying to view your photos on your computer, it's a simple fix, and it's only slightly different from Mac to PC. When you have the folder open containing all the photo files, simply click on the field at the top of the columns that you want to view them by, i.e., "file size", "file type", "date modified", etc.
The simplest way to do this is to make sure you set the date and time correctly on the camera. Then, when you open the pictures in list form, just go to view and arrange them in order of date taken. The computer will arrange them for you.
Many cameras have a "Setup" option where you can specify how the camera names or labels each new photograph. Other buttons or menu options you can look for would be Settings, File Names probably under a Menu option.
The other thing to consider is, how is your computer sorting the files? By name, date taken, date modified, size? Perhaps buy changing the way you're viewing the order of the files, you can make it match the order they were taken in.
