Ok, so instead of the file names being IMG_XXXX.JPG, most of my pictures are named _MG_XXXX.JPG. Every once in a while there will be a picture named IMG_XXXX.JPG, but almost all of them are _MG_XXXX.JPG.

I don't own one but from reading the _mg format is what the camera uses for RAW files.

From the 20D's manual (p56 of the pdf version I got):

If the image is captured with the color space set to Adobe RGB, the filename will start with "_MG_" (the first character is an underscore"
