Weird glitch on my camera!
Yes, that's multiple folders (and a file, IMPOSSIBLE to delete without deleting all the folders as well :-S ) with the same name!
Basically I noticed that every time I turn on my camera a folder is created called DCIM if it doesn't exist. If it does exist, it doesn't create it. So I wondered: What if DCIM does exist...as a file rather than a folder? Well, I created a file called DCIM, and turned on my camera. I then turned it back off and reconnected the USB cable to find that that file was blank (it wasn't before) and there was not one, but TWO folders called DCIM. Opening one gave the following error:
G:\DCIM is not accessible.
The directory name is invalid.
Each time I unplug it and plug it back in again it gives me two more folders called DCIM! In case you don't know (you probably do) no two folders or files in the same folder can have the same name, and neither can a file and a folder have the same name. The camera somehow broke that rule
