    Does anyone know if it is possible to change the filename prefix from _IMG
    to something more useful in the Canon 20D.

    I know it is possible to change the owners name using the cable connection
    and Canon software.

    Many Thanks

    In part could this be due to the DCF filename format standard? From:
    http://www.imaging-resource.com/NEWS/1058681659.html
    " DCF 2.0 files in the Adobe RGB color space would have filenames starting
    with an underscore character, "_". "

    ISTM that a filename format based on some characteristic of the image is
    silly.
