About Folders

As with “100CANON” for example, the folder name starts with three digits
(folder number) followed by five alphanumeric characters. A folder can contain
up to 9999 images (file No. 0001 - 9999). When a folder becomes full, a new
folder with a higher one-up folder number is created automatically. Also, if
manual reset (p.107) is executed, a new folder will be created automatically.
Folders numbered from 100 to 999 can be created.

Creating Folders with a Personal Computer

With the card open on the screen, create a new folder named “DCIM”. Open
the DCIM folder and create as many folders as necessary to save and
organize your images. The folder name must follow the “100ABC_D” format
where the first three digits is 100 - 999 followed by five alphanumeric
characters. The five characters can be a combination of upper- or lower-case
letters from A to Z, numerals, and an underscore “_”. There can be no space in
the folder name. Also, folder names cannot have the same three-digit number
such as “100ABC_D” and “100W_XYZ” even if the letters are different.
