Oh yeah, then I had to rename 100+ files. On Windows I'd use Excel to write a batch file to do it (unless the data was saved on my Samba server, which it usually is). On Linux, this trivially did the trick: $ for i in ?.MPG; do mv $i "00$i"; done $ for i in ??.MPG; do mv $i "0$i"; done
And i know that this is stretching the scope of the list a bit, but for Windows there is a Free utility called Renamer that gives you all kind of renaming options. I use it since I've taken 18,000 pictures with my camera, but Nikon only numbers up to 9999. To keep from duplicating filenames, I run Renamer to insert a 1 in the 5th position. Soon it'll become a 2.
