A6100 video file name

Every time after importing pictures and videos, emptying the memory card the new video file name starts with the same C001. On pictures the number keeps going up, even if the card is empty, or a new card is inserted. Is it a way to change the video file name, at least to include the date?

Are you formatting your card with the computer?

I don't format the card, just import using play memories with the option to delete the files from the card.

I just checked mine and it does start from 001 like you said. I never noticed this before!

I use Advanced Renamer - Free and fast batch rename utility for files and folders to rename my video files with the date in the filename. Windows only.
