gopro hero 7 black file names gx ---- keeps coming back to gx010002 at every sd change

hello

 my name is Philippe 

just bought a new 7 black to replace my hero4... very neat upgrqde indeed. 

i have one annoying issue : at every time i replace the sd card, file number restarts at gx010002. it makes it very cumbersome to need to rename all the files to sort  before edit

 

any one knows how t oremedy this ? 

i have been searching the menu , but not found any way to correct it

 

thanks a lot

Hi @cottardp0

 

This should not revert to a previous file name.

What SD cards are you using?

Try doing a complete format for the SD cards.

Make sure to save any important files before proceeding.

 

Thanks!

Ej

thanks for the feedback

Re: gopro hero 7 black file names gx ---- keeps coming back to gx010002 at every sd change

just did it 

 

i reformated the card and  tried 

what i do : (which is what i have been doing since gopro 3)

1)record file with the camera 

2)switch camera off 

3)remove sd 

4)put sd in PC 

5)copy GX010002 file to PC by the windows file manager 

6)delete all the files  from sd by windows manager

7)put back sd in Gopro

repeat  1 2 3 4   ==> then new file name is again GX010002

 

should i proceed other way ?
