Thanks for your reply! I prefer to copy off the SD card, so I would need the camera to create the directories. Is this possible at all?

thanks again

No, it always just fills up the current folder on the card until it hits 9999 then creates a new folder which can happen at any time.

The safest and sanest way is to treat the card as a daily temporary storage, upload to computer each night into the (selectable) day dated folders via FastStione Viewer or Olympus software or Picasa (I've never used those two for upload, only ever FastStone Viewer) and then format the card in camera to start another shooting session.
