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

Tips would be very much appreciated

Bernhard
