Locating Pictures and Videos on a Card, Card File Naming Conventions

Chapter 12
Locating Pictures and Videos on a Card
Pictures stored on MMC/SD Cards use a standard agreed upon by many camera 
manufacturers. This lets you use the cards in different cameras. If you use a 
card reader to retrieve your files, the following description of the card file 
structure may be helpful.
MISC folder—contains the order files created when you use the Share 
feature to tag files for printing, emailing, and as favorites.
SYSTEM folder—used for updating camera firmware.
DCIM folder—root level folder, contains the 100K4330 folder. Each time you 
turn on the camera or insert a different card, any empty folders within the 
DCIM folder are removed.
100K4330 subfolder—contains all the pictures on the card.
Card File Naming Conventions
m Pictures are named 100_nnnn.JPG, and are numbered in the order in 
which they are taken. The first picture is named 100_0001.JPG; the highest 
number allowed is 100_9999.JPG.
m When a card contains a picture named 100_9999.JPG in the 
\DCIM\100K4330 folder, subsequent pictures appear in a new folder 
(\DCIM\101K4330), beginning with picture 101_0001.JPG.
m Even if you transfer pictures to the computer or delete pictures from the 
camera, the camera continues to use consecutive numbers for all 
subsequent pictures. For example, if the last picture taken was 
100_0007.JPG and you delete it, the next picture you take is named 
m When you insert a different card into your camera, the next picture number 
is defined by incrementing the higher of the last picture taken by the 
camera, or the highest existing picture number in the folder.
m If you use the card in a camera other than the KODAK EASYSHARE DX4330 
Zoom Digital Camera, and that camera manufacturer adheres to this file 
structure standard, the \DCIM folder contains a folder named by that
