Hi all,

This may have already been asked but I couldn't find it with a search. Is there a way to change the names of the files that are saved? They're currently all DJI_000x.jpg but this causes problems as I only have the 16GB memory card it comes with and like to cut and paste the files from that to a folder on my computer. Each time I put the card back in, the new files start at DJI_0001.jpg again and that's a problem when I copy them over as I don't want to overwrite the previous ones but it's tedious to rename them all each time.

Is there a way to have a timestamp instead? For example DJI_2015-10-10_21-02-55.jpg (the current time at time of writing) or even just: DJI_20151010_0001.jpg where it increases from there, at least on different days they'd be different...

What do you do when you copy/move files?

Best regards,

Hterag

Ah, thanks for that Paul, I didn't even realise the pop-out menu there was scrollable! So many more settings to mess with!

I suppose that's better than the number resetting every time but it'd still be nice to have timestamps in the file name in case the files ever lose their created/modified date.

Why didn't I think of that? Thank you

I used to keep my videos/photos in different folders before but it was easier when I had 8GB max storage and would usually not fill that in a day. Even so, it's a good idea but since most of my footage right now isn't particularly useful or interesting (mostly just test flights with different settings) I wanted to just dump it all in the same folder for convenience.

I did a search so I wouldn't have to bother you all with a new thread! I have exactly the same question as the OP.... unfortunately the answer provided by (I assume) Paul..... is missing!

I can't find anything on the app, and I'm sure I've found all the scrollable menu.... any ideas welcomed!

Go into your camera settings on DJI Go app with your bird connected. Change file index mode from "reset" to "continuous". The DJI_000x will always count up and not reset to DJI_0001 every time. I THINK if you format the card it will start over again so be sure to just delete the files off your card and not reformat.
