Default FinePix S7000 now saving filenames in uppercase

Hi, I have a Fuji FinePix S7000, and it works great still, except for that a few months ago it all of a sudden started saving the filenames in all uppercase, which means that lots of times when I go to upload images to the internet, I have to manually change the file extensions to lowercase, because uppercase isn't recognized by the system (sometimes it is, but most of the time not). This is kind of a pain, especially if I have lots of photos. I don't know if some setting got changed somehow, or what. I have been scouring the owner's manual and the internet and can find nothing related to this problem. I already tried reformatting the XD card (no luck), and choosing the "Reset" option in Settings menu on the camera, which was supposed to reset all factory settings except date/time, language and video system. Still no luck.

Hoping someone will have a suggestion!
Thanks!

you can try to do a batch conversion of all your photos through adobe software (CS or Photo Shop) and see if that would be of help.

G'day reidun

I suspect it's a Window$ issue

Can you load a serties of images onto another computer and compare results?
If the other computer shows u/case, then it's the camera, for sure ... if l/case then it's a Windows issue

I guess that somewhere in your Windows setup something has changed on you

Try My Computer > C: drive > Organise > Folder Options and see what you find buried down there

Regards, Phil

Hi, Phil,
Thanks for your reply, I sort of wondered about that myself. However, everything else I save on my hard drive has all lowercase file extensions. Word processing files, downloads, PDFs, etc. Would this mean it is the camera? I don't currently have another computer to try it on.

Thanks!

Another reason I think it's the camera is that I noticed that filenames used to be completely lowercase i.e. dscf3490.jpg. Now they are showing up as DSCF3490.JPG etc.

Thanks!

G'day reidun

Okay mate - several thoughts again...

1- next time you go shopping down the high street, take a memory card to the local "Boots-the-chemist" place and ask them what is displayed on their screen

2- it is possible that somewhere deep in one of the camera menus is the option for u/c vs l/c lettering. I personally have never struck it before, but stranger things have happened

Regards, Phil

I put the card in another laptop and it still showed capital letters for file extensions. Other files on this laptop are lower case.

This is very puzzling, and annoying, but I don't seem to be able to find any solution. I have scoured the camera menus for a setting, but don't find anywhere to change this. I have also looked in the owner's manual, but no luck there either.

Could it be the way the card is formatted? I have reformatted the card a few times, but I have usually used the camera to do this, and there is no option in the camera to choose lower case or capital when formatting.

Thanks for the suggestions though, it looks like I'll probably have to live with it.

I have not done a firmware upgrade, but according to what information I can find online, Fujifilm hasn't released any firmware upgrades for this camera anyway.
