Ok, I give!!! What's the secret to get the 20D to number files in continuous order?

Example: My D60 will number files 100- 0001, 100-0002, 100-0003, etc. Turn the camera off and it picks right up with the last file when shooting begins again. 20D starts at oooo, ooo1, ooo2, etc. Turn camera off, and reverts back to same file numbers when shooting begins again.

Suppose I don't want to "rename" files, but want to leave as "number files", how does one compensate when new files have identical numbers?:?

Go into your menu and change the setting to "continuous"...You only have 2 options, one is, every time you change flash cards, your file numbers start over, the other is, your file numbers keep going up to 9999 and then start over...Continuous should solve your problem... :O

what John said should do the trick. Only 2 settings, continuous or auto re-set. If it is set to continuous as mine is the numbering should go up to 9999 before it starts over again.

Does this happen only when you turn the camera off or does it happen when you take out the battery? You might need to replace the internal battery if it is not holding your settings.
