Samsung NX1000 not capturing more than 10,000 images

I'm using my Samsung NX1000 camera for a telecine project so it needs to take many photos but for some reason it's not honoring the DCF (Design rule for Camera File system) speciļ¬cations.

In the manual it says it's supposed to do this:

But for me, each folder from 100PHOTO is getting only 999 images and then stops at folder 110PHOTO totalling 9,999 images altogether on the SD card. And I get an stop error:

Simply put, its doing this:

  • 100PHOTO - SAM_0001.jpg to SAM_0999.jpg
  • 101PHOTO - SAM_1001.jpg to SAM_1999.jpg
  • 102PHOTO - SAM_2001.jpg to SAM_2999.jpg
  • 103PHOTO - SAM_3001.jpg to SAM_3999.jpg

and so on, until ...

  • 110PHOTO - SAM_0001.jpg to SAM_0010.jpg (its reset and doesnt go past 10).

It should be saving 9,999 in 100PHOTO folder, then create a new folder called 101PHOTO and add next 9,999 image to it and so on until card is full. Each folder should have SAM_0000.jpg to SAM_9999.jpg.

It's very frustrating having to keep taking the sd card out to take images off when there's plenty of space on it. (A genuine 128GB formatted in camera).

Does anyone know if there's a setting I need to change? I've contacted Samsung support and got no help. Or is it a firmware issue that'll never get fixed.
