Hello fellow D7000-users, as a fairly new D7000-owner I was unaware of the (seemingly well known) problem with random folder creation. After setting and resetting the folders numerous times and trying to find the cause I was getting quite furious with my new camera. After searching the web it was a sort of relief to find that it seems to be a firmware problem. But I could not find any suggestions for a workaround until (hopefully) a fixed firmware is released by nikon. Does anybody here have a temporary fix or something helpfull?
Short version of the problem: - folder is set for all modes (M, A, S, P, U1, U2) to <100D7000> - I shoot <RAW+Jpeg>, NEFs in slot 1, Jpegs in slot 2 - videos are saved to slot 2 - randomly the camera creates new folders (up to 103D700 before I noticed) - in the new folders there are NEFs and some (but not all) Jpegs - roll-over because of file-numbering above 9999 is not the case
I just realized, that few days after i purchased D7000 I noticed that my save to folder was 106. There is no way i took 5000 images in few days, even thought i might went over 1000. Is there a chanse that my camera was previously used and sold to me as brand new?

So, take a picture in RAW and open it up on your computer and look at your EXIF Data to see the shutter count. If you are not using a MAC or a newer PC I cannot help you other than there are plenty of resources out there.
I also reformat both cards after EVERY off load on to my hard drive. It should be standard protocol with transfering files. It's amazing how many do not do this.
>Are you running the latest firmware version? It's currently >1.02.
Thank you for pointing this out. i'm on 1.02 firmware. My camera is only three weeks old and 50% of my shutter actuations are from just testing camera in different modes/AF etc... for for long weekend trip i took over 1200 pictures, which are down to 160 or so for final selection. I have a long way to go. )
