I set the camera up to do sequenced filenaming. First several hundred shots thru several different memory cards all was fine. I.e., all files were sequentially numbered starting with 0001. I was doing a boxing shoot last night and after changing memory cards (same cards as previously used and my practice is to format the card in camera when I insert it) the filename sequence jumped by several thousand. The last filename used on the first card was 0574 (which was correct) and the first filename sequence on the next card should have been 0575 but it appeared as 3760! The camera then continued naming the files sequentially from 3760. Anyone have a clue? Thanks, Tony
