I want to know if it is normal of the camera when inserting in it a SD Memory Card to create some folders by default. Is There a way to Restore the Camera so this wont happen? The camera also give me the message that the content in the flash card has been format and in wont be able to record, but it does.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Sorry, it said not suitable. OK, What I don't want is for the flash card to automatically create 2 or 3 folders called DCIM, MISC and PRIVATE (when video is taken ) every time I insert the SD memory Flash card to the camera. Is this normal or i have been "hacked"?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
If there's a way to restore it, for this not to happen? Also in the DCIM folder it creates a sub-folder called: 100_PANA. I want to delete those folders and open the SD card with my own folder. Is this possible?

Yes, the firmware in the camera will always create these folders automatically.

There isn't any way to prevent it except by deleting them.
