Re: That's right

Since I can't afford enough Whisky nowadays, my memory is not what it used to be.

But as far as I remember, it was a little bit more complicated. If you had a card with a higher number (after having used it in another camera), it was not enough to format it before putting it in. The camera in some way found the old numbering and used it.

Still as far as I remember, if you wanted to keep your own numbering, you had to take a photo. Then you had to renumber that photo on the card appropriately, using a card reader. After that it worked. The information must have been hidden somewhere on the card.
