Gopro 3 (black) file numbering Can't Post

So, I have what may be a weird issue.

I have some files on my card Lets say it's
Gopro001
Gopro002
Gopro003
Gopro004
Gopro005


When I delete one and leave the rest (lets say I delete 003)

Gopro001
Gopro002

Gopro004
Gopro005

the next time I use the gopro the first file to record is
Gopro003

then,
Gopro006
Gopro007
Gopro008


Etc.

Is there a continuous numbering option?

Nope. I generally copy and reformat each time I download into a descriptive folder and just kill non-used files within there. Also remember you can sort by date so the numbering doesn't help me out a bunch. Another note, after a few months, you'll find that setting your date is very very important!

Oh yes. I found that out with my gopro 1.Wink

Date and time definitely make it easier.

It sucks that if you have to reset it every time you have to take the battery out. (but, it sucks that I HAVE TO take the battery out so often to "unlock" the damn thing...Luckily Gopro is going to replace my HD3 Black.)

Something odd happend to me regarding date and time.

I set time and date when I got it, and used it a bit during the winter.
Now that the skydivingseason is on again, the date is three days behind.
The time is correct, only the date.

Make it a habbit of cheking date and time each day Wink

Just got a new unit (they replaced it for free)
Hopefully, I won't have any other issues.

the first time I recorded it only recorded for 12 seconds. I reformatted. recorded again. the first video worked for 2 minutes the second stopped after 9 seconds. I RE-REFORMATTED and now it seems to work...until it doesn't. I assume it may the be card and less likely the battery.
