    G1 just started to repeat file numbers.

    Over the last couple of days my G1 has started to repeat file numbers when a new card is insterted.

    On Friday it repeated 16 and yesterday it repeated 69.

    Luckily Breeze Downloader spots the repetition and I can prepare for the conflict. But it is annoying.

    Has anyone else had this problem - and tracked down the cause?

    Re: G1 just started to repeat file numbers.

    are you talking about the last digits or the folder number is the same as well?

    1010151
    1020151

    the first is shot 151 in folder 101
    the second is shot 151 in folder 102

    Did you do a reset of the file numbers in the menu?

    1. No, I don't mean that. I mean that the second card starts with, say, 16 numbers that have alredy been used on the previous card - and then continues.

    2. No. Or my second card would have started with xxxxx1.

    I wonder, now, whether it might be that I did not power down when swopping cards? Can't remember whether I did or didn't.

    G1 - how to reset the Folder Number ?

    It's about time to resurrect this good old thread .-)

    I was fiddling with my wife's old Panasonic G1 (she now uses a Nikon V1) and after I had made a reset of the file numbers the Folder Number changed from 100 => to 101
    Now I would like to get the Folder Number back to the original Folder Number 100, does anyone know how to do that ?
    Is it at all possible, I can't find it in the User Manual ?

    By the way the worst Camera Manual I ever saw, so incredibly messy and noisy and it even does not contain a Register
