I bought a camera on ebay, identical to the one I usually use (that one time wouldn't completely open until the 5th try, though that was a year ago) that works fine afaict and in F:\DCIM there are 4 subdirectories,
100ANDRO 2012 100LGDCF later in 2012 101PHOTO 2014 Camera 2013
I want to lend it to someone tonight or tomorrow and it would be nice if my friend had her own directory, but if I make a new one, how do I make it the directory that the camera uses?
1) Do I rename 101PHOTO and then create an empty one with that name??????
That sounds familiar.
And I can do that while the SD card is in the camera, connected to the laptop by a cable, right?
I"m traveling and by luck, one of my best friends and his wife are here for their first grandchild's wedding. She looked for the cable for her little SONY DSC W830 Optical Steady Shot camera before she left home and couldnt' find it, and I've been to 5 electronics stores with no success. (I have a car, they don't.) It's USB jack is narrower than all the others I've seen. Is this something Sony does? Or why is it so hard to find.
So after I couldn't find the cable, I thought about lending her my camera and an hour later I remembered that I'd brought a spare** camera, in case this got lost or broken. I even saw it when I was looking in the suitcase last night for the USB cable but I didn't think of it.
**Two spares actually. One that had been an insurance camera that I paid about $10 for at a hamfest. The seller had 10 or 20 of them left, all used by claims adjusters of the same insurance company, that had moved up to better.
Anyhow I thought I checked when I got this 3 or 4 months ago from Ebay and there were only 3 or 4 pictures on it, But now I see there are lots.
Worst comes to worst, I'll just make a division based on date -- after all, I'll be there too and I don't think she'll have any secret pictures. But if I'm right above, I'd like to do it that way.
2) Also, I thought for 3 years I had been setting my date wrong in the laptop but it seems like the sate isn the Samsung WB-35F is not set the way the laptop is: That is, I finally learned witht he latptop to set the date and time at home and just change the timezone when I travel.
But this one, the Samsung camera, displayed on the screen the time from back home when I did that, and it seemed to want me to put in the local time in the time setting. Is that what I do???? And it 's different from the laptop????
It has settings for Home timezone and visiting timezone
