    One option is you don't have to do anything.
    When you run a search for DSC_0001.JPG, the results will display the "date created" field if you choose to.
    You may have 5 to 7 sets of the same file name, same camera, but it will always have a different date stamp.

    I do as per Kiwi's recommendation..

    I'm now at DSG_****

    it's easier and you maintain a coherent file structure on your PC.
    Nikon D800E, D300, D70s
    {Nikon} -> 50/1.2 : 500/8(CPU'd) : 105/2.8VR Micro : 180/2.8ais : 105mm f/1.8ais : 24mm/2ais
    {Sigma}; ->10-20/4-5.6 : 50/1.4 : 12-24/4.5-5.6II : 150-600mm|S
    {Tamron}; -> 17-50/2.8 : 28-75/2.8 : 70-200/2.8 : 300/2.8 SP MF : 24-70/2.8VC

    OK. just had a squizz at the D80's menu(and on my D70s) and it seems you can't set the file name sequence, only that you can reset the number sequence(and turn it on or off!).

    you can only rename the folder that the images are stored in on the camera.(that was my confusion)

    bugga!

    What you can do tho is to use Nikon Transfer and allow it to rename all files to whatever you prefer..

    so you can change the DSC_ to DSD_(via Nikon Transfer that is) .... or even better! OLD DOG_

    Apologies for that Graeme. Too many years with a Dxxx camera... and you get spoilt with far too many set up options, you know!

    Actually! Nikon's Transfer is a better way to transfer files from camera/card to PC anyhow.. allows you lots of fast/easy detailed information options.. and the flexibility of allowing you to rename the images as you please is probably a good thing for 'ya too.
    Have to say, I was skeptical of it for a long time, and Andrew(I@M) kind'a convinced me, seeing him transferring files and adding keywords and other such info on the fly.
    Haven't looked back since.

    I just looked at Picture Project and you can save by date, so might try that tomorrow. Hope it works.

    Save them the same way you already do.

    Provided you don't keep all of your images in one directory, duplicated filenames should not be a problem.

    It's not an issue for me, and I have three or four of a given image filename.

    My article on my approach to image storage and backups might be useful to you.

    If picture project doesn't work, you could try downloading to a temp directory & then running a free program antrenamer http://www.antp.be/software/renamer to add a prefix, etc:

    Graeme, give pic project the flick, I don't think they even give that away anymore.

    Download Nikon Transfer and View NX2 .

    When you import files with "transfer" it allows immediate renaming by a variety of conventions including "name", date and time taken etc.

    thanks Andrew......I just had a really good look at PProject and it allows similar to N transfer.....date, original file (no) and text...all on block import. So I`ll go and take a few more shots and then download to the PC using this method. If that fails then I`ll have a look at N transfer and view NX.
