Problem With 30D! Help Needed Asap!

Thu Jan 11, 2007 6:40 pm

Hey fellow photographers.

I have a very urgent problem with my Eos 30D which I want to get fixed before my next trip. Recently I uploaded pictures from my computer onto my old powershot S1, and viewed them on my 30D afterward. Since then, my folder numbers (the ones the pictures are stored in) have jumped from 104 to 868 (the number they were on on my old S1). I tried reseting it my using the manual folder reset button, and now have reached folder 999. The problem is it wont reset to 100, and keeps saying cannot create folder. I need this fixed but have no idea how.

Any replies greatly appreciated, this is very important to me

Cheers,
Alex

Don't you have the CF card with the 104 folder on it? Or was that overwritten with the S1 upload?

Looking at the manual the camera should start off with the highest folder/file on the card. So, could you delete all the folders from 868 and up, using your PC and take it from there?

Alternatively, use a blank CF card and create folder 105, say.

I get the impression that you can't "reset" the CF card, you have to reformat it, or delete everything on it. So once you get to 999 the card is full and you have to replace it, or clear it.

just format the card into your 30D and it will be fine.
