Is there a way to specify which number the image number file names start on? I'd like to start where it left off when I switched drones.

Hi there.
There are two modes of file ordinal
1. Reset: It means that if you delete the file(001.002.003), the file you record later will be named from 001 on;
2. Continuous: It means that if you named the file 001, the next file will be named 002. And even if you delete the 001, the later files won‘t be named from 001.
You can set that in the DJI Go 4 APP. Switch it to photo mode---click the button 2 in the image below---Setting, you will find the option.

What I'm looking for is to not start it at file 001, but start it at like file 354 (since I already have files 001-353 from my Spark and want to keep them all sequential)

Interesting, try taking a picture with the drone, change the file name to have a higher number on the sd card then put the card back in the drone and take another picture and see what that does! Or create 353 copies of the same file, it will then have to start at 354, I’m working on it won’t overwrite existing files.

Haven’t tried this but it might work!

Just tested my thoughts above, if you set the file numbering to continuous and rename a file to be the one before the number you wish to start on, then the MA will continue from there.
