    Cannot seem to download the firmware at this time. I click on the link
    and it pauses for a moment and then stops. PErhaps they are working on
    the site, or it is overloaded, or.....

    Odd -- it works with internet explorer, but not netscape.

    Not sure why this happened to your camera Cecil,

    I just checked and applying the update to my 10D did not reset the counter.

    To reset your counter:

    1. Clear your compact flash card
    2. Copy your highest numbered image (or rename any image to the number you
    want to reset to) from your pc to the compact flash card
    3. Make sure that the camera is set on 'File numbering>Continuous'
    4. Put card back into camera, and take another picture

    and that should do it.

    Well, I've got an interesting variation on all this. Wrote the upgrade
    to a clean CF (formatted in the camera and then all folders deleted).
    When I did the upgrade, the frame counter was reset to 100-0001.

    Tried renaming the folders on the CF (in the card reader), but made the
    mistake of putting the folder number too high (I called it 160 instead
    of 116). Now I can't get my folder number down to 116, and my files are
    6000, 6001 ,...

    So I thought, if one loading of the firmware will reset the counter, a
    reload should do the same. No such luck!

    I've renumbered files, changed the content of the ctg file, fed it with
    a file numbered 1620, reset the camera settings, formatted the CF,
    reloaded the firmware. All done several times and all in various
    different orders. It seems that whatever you do, you can NEVER get the
    folder number down below the highest it has ever seen in its lifetime!
    Except if it just happens to do it 'accidentally' during a firmware
    upgrade.

    Anyone cracked this? I realise it's akin to 'clocking' a car's speedo,
    and perhaps that's why it can't be done. But I really would like to undo
    my mistake, so that I have a reasonable indications of real usage of the
    camera.

    You might try this: Set the camera to start the numbering over with each
    card, put in a blank card and take a photo which should be like
    100-0001. Then do the high numbered photo on a card trick again and I
    think this should work.

    Lisa,

    Many thanks for this - it worked! I thought the 'reset' option only
    reset the image counter to 0001 within the highest folder, not the
    folder number itself. The manual is not clear - it refers to the folder
    number in all examples as XXX-.

    Most welcome Alan. I'm about to roll over at 9999, so I'll wait a week
    or two and do the firmware upgrade then :)
