Folder Names 
On the memory card, folder names are preceded by a three-digit folder number assigned 
automatically by the camera (e.g., 100D5000). Each folder can contain up to 999 
photographs. During shooting, pictures are stored in the highest-numbered folder with the 
selected name. If a photograph is taken when the current folder is full or contains a 
photograph numbered 9999, the camera will create a new folder by adding one to the 
current folder number (e.g., 101D5000). The camera treats folders with the same name but 
different folder numbers as the same folder. For example, if the folder NIKON is selected for 
Active folder, photographs in all folders named NIKON (100NIKON, 101NIKON, 102NIKON, 
etc.) will be visible when Current is selected for Playback folder (0 146). Renaming 
changes all folders with the same name but leaves the folder numbers intact.
