I have a Minolta Dimage Xt. Sometimes when I take a lot of pictures, the file numbers on the pictures get out of order. This can be a real hassle when I am taking a lot of pictures during a trip, and the pictures are not in proper order. 95% of the pictures stay in order. I have no clue as to why this happens.

Are you deleting some pictures of the card as your trips progreses? If you take ten pictures at the zoo one day, review them that night and decide to delete numbers five and eight, some cameras will put the next two pictures you take into those positions instead of starting with 11.

Mr. Pogo,



That is one of things that I was thinking of. I did some testing awhile back to see if if going back to review the pictures and only going part way through the pictures before turning the camera off. THis did not affect the results. I will test it with deleting some pictures.



I think you will be correct. If so, do you know of a way around it?

I found a "file memory" mode on the camera. When the memory is turned "off", and a picture is deleted, the order changes. If the memory is turned "on" the order does not change.
