    so my t1i has been naming my files with "_MG_xxx" and "IMG_xxx" and because it goes back and forward from the UNDERSCORE to the I, it mixed up photo order. minor thing. but its just killing me. :mad:

    if anyone could inform me as to why or how to change it, it'll be greatly appreciated. :)

    it's not messing up anything. you're shooting in RAW + Jpg, so it makes a RAW file and a jpg copy of every image you take. RAW is _MG, Jpg is IMG.

    Did you recently change color space? When you're shooting in sRGB it labels them IMG, when shooting in Adobe RGB they're labelled _MG. It's supposed to let you know which are going to need a little extra care in color processing (my understanding, anyhow).
