"Nikon D40 / Elements 5.0 problem..."

Took some 1000 images yesterday, 02/25/11, with my D40 of snow geese at a nearby lake. When I downloaded them into Elements 5.0 from the Sandisk card thru my Sandisk card reader,it placed them all into one folder , but didnt arrange the photos in time-taken order as it normally does. Just jumbled them up in no particular time taken sequence within that one folder.
Does anyone know why it would have done this and is there anything I can do now to place them in the normal time-taken order ?

NOTE : Just checked the EXIF data and the file name of the first image in the file shows as DSC_0001 with a time taken of 217pm. The last image in the file is named DSC_1003 with a time taken of 216pm. The actual time spent taking the pics was about 4.5 hours. So they are lined up according to file name/number from 0001-1003 , but jumbled up according to the time sequence they were taken. Would this indicate that the problem lies with the D40 rather than with Elements 5.0?

File no. sequence per page 86 of D40's user's manual is set to OFF (default).

When I go to the "import batch" or "date-newest first" option in Elements, it shows the photos lined up in the correct time-taken order. But when I go back to the original folder created by Elements, which is how I keep my photos sorted, they are all jumbled up again.

Have had this camera for about 5 years and it has never done this before.



Thanks in advance for any help,
Lyndsey Cogburn

It sounds as though your camera image sequence counter "rolled over" from 9999 to 0000 (or 0001)...it's only a 4-digit counter. Then, for some reason, PSE arranged them in file-number sequence, not time-order. I think your camera is working OK. I think PSE has somehow changed. I don't use the PSE Organizer, but I'll bet there is a setting that controls this behavior.
