    Hi Everyone!
    I get brutally annoyed by the way my Neo names the picture files made with the camera.
    My first android phone was an LG optimus Gt running android 2.1 and the phone created picture files embedding the date (IMG20110808 etc).
    The neo genereates DSC_xxxx filenames which would not be such a big pain, the annoying thing for me is that when i copy all pics onto the pc and delete files from the mem.card the bloody thing resets the counter creating a DSC_0001 again. Because of this I cannot store my pics in one folder, but always have to create new ones if I want to avoid them getting overwritten.
    Is there any way to change this? I use the basic camera sw of the android system.

    Any ideas appreciated!

    Unfortunately this is not an option that can be changed in this model,. The only way would be to manually change the file names using a file manager application prior to transferring them to a PC.
