Re: Reset Folder No.

Finally, I have contacted the Panasonic Repair Centre. The answer is the only way to reset the folder no is to bring it back to the repair centre and have it rested there. Moreover, say there is a file 1000001 in the memory card now. After you use the "No. Reset" function and if you do not format the memory card (in other words, the 1000001 file is still in the card), the new file no will become 1010001 when you take a new picture with this memory card. Therefore, I will format the memory card before I use the "No. Reset" fuction in order to make the new picture started from 1000001.

Re: Reset Folder No.

Regarding the "No.Reset" function stated on p.26 of the manual, "Set this when you want to start the file number of the picture from 0001 on the next recording. (The folder number is updated, and the file number starts from 0001.) The folder number can be assigned from 100 to 999. When the folder number reaches to 999, it cannot be reset. We recommend formatting the card after saving the data on a PC or other." So is there any way to reset the folder number? I found that after I format my SD card, the folder/file number just did not reset. I just don't understand what the purpose of the above last sentence is. Thank you very much.

Can't take pictures says folder error


The manual on page 91 says : A folder with the same first three digit number already exists on the memory card (for example: 123MSDCF and 123ABCDE). Select another folder, or create a new folder (pages 65, 66).
I think this looks familiar?

Reset to factory settings - what does 'reset file no' mean?


"Reset file No." is the reset for the numbering system on your file folders only. You want to use just "Reset" which will reset the entire camera back to factory settings.

My DMC-TZ3 always stores images in haphazard order, not the exact order in which they were taken. Why? And how can I make it store images in chronological order please?


This is from the manual: "File numbers are reset when new folders are created." "New folders are created in the following cases: 1. When pictures are taken to folders containing files numbered 999. 2. When using cards already containing the same folder number (including pictures taken other cameras, etc.) 3. When recording after performing a 'NO. RESET' (found in the setup menu).

I take a lot of pictures and delete the off of my SD card. When placing pictures in folders it seems to have the same numbers and this causes a problem with maybe deleting old pics. Is there a way for the...


You have three choices for file numbering, controlled by Custom Setting #D7:

Off: File numbers are always started at 0001 whenever a new folder is created, when the memory card is formatted, or a new memory card is inserted into the camera.

On: File numbers are incremented until they reach 9999, at which point a new folder is created and the file numbering will again begin at 0001.

Reset: The file number is reset to one more than the current number in the current folder. If there are no pictures in the current folder, the number is reset to 0001.

Because the numbering only uses four digits, numbers are going to repeat every ten thousand pictures no matter what you do.

Photo No back to zero


FILE NAME..................................................Resetting the file names of pictures
RESET This method is useful when grouping files on separate cards.
The file number and folder number are reset every time a new card
is inserted in the camera. The folder number returns to [No. 100]
and the file number returns to [No. 0001].
AUTO This method is useful when you want to manage all your files
with sequential numbers.
Even if a new card is inserted, the folder number and file number are
retained from the previous card. This helps you to manage multiple cards.

To do this you go to the menu and to the setup option and press ok. Down arrow to file name and pick the option you want to use and press ok.

Slow in clicking photo on DSC-V1


The DSC-V1 can use a Memory Stick of up to 2GB so that's not your problem.

Rather than type out a whole step by step guide on how all the menu settings can affect the camera, it's easier to just reset the camera to the factory defaults to see if that fixes the problem.

There's a small hole about 1mm in diameter on the camera base plate, just by the battery cover hinge clearly marked "reset". There's a button inside which you'll need to press whilst the camera is turned on, use anything which fits in the hole such as a paperclip (don't use a pencil though!).

If the symptoms cease, then it was a user setting which was the cause. If not, then the camera will need disassembly to diagnose and fix but sadly it's an uneconomic repair.

Note that a reset also returns the folder and file numbering to zero as well. To avoid overwriting previously uploaded photos uploaded you'll need to go into the menu system to manually set this to your needs. if you don't know what file number you were up to then just start with a new folder instead.

Hi

The camera creates its own folder named " DCIM " during the initial Format process
New folders would be created in this folder. To recover your lost images

Try removing the memory card and connecting it via a card reader/usb adapter to browse the contents of the card. Save all pictures elsewhere on your PC.


But chances are when you created the new folder the camera may have deleted the contents of the default folder. (the previous existing photos)

Save any photos you can find & re-format the memory card using Camera settings menu.
