    Using 32gb Sandisc Extreme IV 32gb cards for the first time on EOS 7D. Same body, first card accepted over 1100 RAW pics before card full message. Second similar card was took aprox over 1000. I noticed that there were two folders in the card, one with aprox 720 and the second with aprox 250 RAW pics. I was not aware that the 7D did this. On the EOS 20D, a new new file was created every 100 pics or so. Was using Sandisc 4gb Extreme IV CF cards previously.
    Any advise?
    Thanks

    Are the cards second hand?

    The 7d has the option to create folders on cards which the 20d didnt.

    Download all your images and then reformat the cards using the 7d.

    Shooting all in RAW, no other setting. Do not understand why two folders were created on the second card.

    is one folder for one days shots and the next folder for another day.. I get a different folder for every different days pictures taken......if i've left the CF card in the camera for a few days without changing it...it downloads a different folder for each days captures..

    The first card was filled over seven days or so, no folders. The second card was used over nine days and w.as not full, yet two folders were created. When the first card was full, it was a straight card change. the camera was used daily.

    At a guess I would say that your continuous file numbering reached image 9999. The camera then reset to image 0001 at which time it created a new folder.
