I am using my brothers rebel xt until I can afford my own. I'm confused as to when it puts things in new folders and found it's usually whenever i turn off and on the camera and every day. Ever since I got this flash when I go to load the camera stuff it puts each image in its own folder and having to go through hundreds of folders individually isn't going to work for me. Is there a setting I have to change on the camera or flash? Is there another way of loading the images other than plugging it in and opening it like a drive?

That is a camera function and has nothing to do with the flash. You may have accidentally changed the file numbering system from "continuous" to "auto reset" but it sounds like there is something else going on. Do you use a card reader or just hook up the camera to the computer? Check page 67 of your XT manual.

It's on continuous still. I don't remove the memory card, ever. I plug the camera into the computer with the usb cord. I noticed it did this first when I went to the zoo and i actually didn't use the flash now that i think about it. I did put it on AV mode for the first time though and used my brothers 70-200mm f/4 L lens which I rarely use. BUT that is the first time I've used the camera since I got the flash and messed with it, so is it just the av mode setting? I didn't use it and had it on M today and it still did pictures in individual folders.

It probably has something to do with your computer file system then. Try using a card reader. It downloads much faster, and I think your file folder problem will be solved as well.

Use a card reader and windows explorer. Find *.cr2 or *.jpeg and copy them off to one folder.

I just found one link on google with someone who had the same camera and the same thing happened, they were told to format the card in the camera and it should work right again so I'll be trying that once I load these pictures. Gotta transfer folder by folder ugh! It's still loading and at 225 so far

From the root folder, just do a search for *.CR2 or *.JPG and then select all and copy/paste onto your hard drive.

I tried that but it takes forever to even load the folders, I tried the search before they fully loaded as well as after and it just loads until it freezes up.

I had the same problem, tried the reformat exercise and it worked!

Thanks
