Renaming works for me as advertised with .JPG files, but not with .CR2 files. If you shoot raw (I do) the files (at least mine) will have an underscore as the first character even though you cannot input an underscore as the first character. It makes no difference what character you input for the first character, it is ignored and replaced with an underscore.

Anyone shooting raw that finds anything different?

As usual (IMO) the Canon documentation leaves a lot to be desired.

If your in-camera color space is set to ARGB, the file name will always start with an underscore.
