Recently, I downloaded images from the SD card on my Nikon D810 that had numbers from DSC7042 to DSC7107 because I needed some images right away. I then put the card back into the camera (NO re-formatting or changing settings in any menu) and continued shooting. At the end of the shoot, the camera had re-numbered all the pictures from DSC0361 to DSC0652. In other words, the former DSC7042 was now DSC0361. How can I restore the camera's numbering and (ii) how can I prevent this from happening again?

    To be clear - you are claiming the camera renamed the existing photos on the card to new numbers?! – rrauenza May 23 '16 at 1:15

  • @rrauenza He is claiming just that: "In other words, the former DSC7042 was now DSC0361" – MikeW Jun 21 '16 at 1:02

Take a look at this question at Nikon.

It talks about Custom Settings Menu d6:

By default sequential numbering is set to "OFF"

Sequential file numbering OFF - When a new card is inserted the current folder and file numbers are not continued, file numbering starts again in a new folder.

Sequential file numbering ON - When a new card is inserted the camera can continue numbering files in sequence from the last file number on the previous card.

  • Thank you, Rrauenza. My sequential file numbering was always set to ON. As I state in my question, I did not change any settings in the menu. – Ashok Gupta May 22 '16 at 17:40
  • Ah I misunderstood. You are claiming the camera renamed the existing photos on the card?! – rrauenza May 23 '16 at 1:14
