When I download pictures from a D70 to my pc, some files (most of them) have an "_" before the name, ex: "_DSC_0123.jpg" and others just have the correct name, ex: "DSC_0123.jpg". These files are intercalated, and I don't know why this happens. I noticed that the files without the "_" have better, vivid, colors than the others.

Please, help me with some explanation and/or a solution for this.

Thank you

According to the FAQ's in Nikon USA's digital support forum, the answer is as follows:

Images recorded in the "Optimize image" "Color Mode II (Adobe RGB)" setting have names that begin with a "_" underscore character, for example: "_DSC0001.JPG".

This is part of the new EXIF 2.2.1 standard, which enables imaging programs to recognize images taken in the Adobe 1998 color space without the need for an embedded profile. At present only Adobe Photoshop CS supports this new EXIF standard. This information is mentioned on page 41 of the D70 User Manual
