why do digicam memory cards have such an elaborate folder directory system???
Jun 6, 2011

Can anyone explain the reason for all the elaborate file folder system the HX9v and other digicams record on their memory cards??

The only two folders that are relevant to users are the buried subfolders "DCIM 100" in the MSDCF folder and the buried subfolder “Stream” under the subfolders AVCHD/BCMD, which is in a folder titled Private.

Wouldn't it be alot easier if there were only two folders titled photos and videos??

What are the technical reasons for the 12 different folders, subfolders, and sub sub folders???

Thanks for your help
