Duplicate file names when formatting memory cards
I followed a suggestion to format a memory card occasionally in the camera. As a result, I now find my photos with duplicate file names when I download them into my computer. Can you help with this problem?
When you format your camera's memory card, depending upon your model, the file names might reset every time. As a general rule, this is a problem only if you are storing all of your photos in a single folder - which is not a good idea. It's a much better bet to import each new batch of photos into their own unique subfolder within your Pictures folder. If you do this, duplicate file names will never be a concern. Either way, you'll eventually have to contend with this duplicate problem when you buy a new memory card.
