Hi everyone,

I am new to the forum and to Nikon. I've had my D5000 for a while now. I had taken about 800 photos when I decided to clear my memory card to make room for a wedding shoot, so I was up to about DSC_0800 in terms of file numbers.

So I cleared my card and took about 300 photos at the wedding. To my surprise, I discovered that the numbers started all over again (DSC_0001 - DSC_0300). This is particularly problematic since I already have photos with those numbers on my computer.

Is there a way to manually set the start point of your memory card's numbering. I really wish I could tell my camera that the next photo it takes will be DSC_0801.

Does anyone have any suggestions. I find it hard to believe I'm the only one who finds this to be a problem. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
