Default 7i file numbers resetting to Pict00001

What am I doing wrong? Each time I delete the contests of my CF cards used in my 7i, the numbering starts over at Pict00001 rather than continuing up the series with unique numbers. I'm doing business the same way I did with my Nikon 990 which kept counting up even handling swapping back and forth between more than one CF card. I transfer images using a card reader (Lexar Jumpshot) and delete from the card after transfer rather than in the camera. Is there a camera setting I have wrong that keeps it from remembering the last number used? This is made tolerable by the existance of renaming utilities but it is still a hassle.

Go to the SETUP menu, CUSTOM1, and turn File # memory on.
That's the first thing that I set on the D7i
(I had a Sony Mavica that had the feature too).

Default File numbering

Thanks Terry! I'll do that in my Minolta & also check our old Mavica 71. Annoying to have to rename files to avoid overwriting them
