I have a lovely new Panasonic LX5, replacing my LX3. I am using the same SD card as in the LX3, which already has the folders 100, 101, 102, ... 116 (yes, that was a thousand photos per folder...).
The manual seems to imply that the new camera would continue with photos starting with 1170000.jpg; however, it has started at 1000000.jpg, and is blithely placing the new photos mixed up with the occasional old one into the existing folders. So I will have every filename twice on my pc, unless I rename all the old files - something I have no intention of doing.
How can I get the new camera to start numbering its files with a later number? Thanks!
