a6500 Creating New Folders for Photos

So all my photos are placed in one folder on my sd card, until yesterday my camera starting creating a bunch of new folders and placing my pictures randomly in all these new folders. Why is it doing it and how do I stop it?!

Also because it's doing this, it's changing the file numbers so I'll be having repeat numbers.

Hi Bcarroll1609,

 

Thank you for considering Sony Community!

 

To resolve this issue, please set the [File Number] to [Series]:

 

MENU → (Setup) → [File Number] → [Series]

 

When the [File Number] is set to [Series], the camera will assign numbers to files sequentially up to "9999" without resetting.

The File Number is set to Series. It has changed folders 3 times on me over the course of a couple days. It will even mix and mingle photos into all 3 different photos from the same shoots.

Re: a6500 Creating New Folders for Photos

Hi Bcarroll1609,

 

If [Folder Name] is set to [Standard Form] and there are 2 folders or more, you can select the folder on the memory card to which images are to be recorded.

 

MENU→ (Setup)→[Select REC Folder]→desired folder.


Note: You cannot select the folder when [Folder Name] is set to [Date Form].
