I'm aware that work has been done to find the name of the current playback image (e.g. http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,2026.0.html, but has anyone looked at getting the name of the latest (or next) image in 'record' mode? The camera certainly knows what name it will give to the next image.

If it can't be found by examining memory, I guess the name (or at least the counter that determines the numeric suffix) is in the 'database' on the card - does anyone know how to decode it?

The raw code already does it.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Thanks, I'll take a look (I did a quick browse of it but obviously not carefully enough).

postscript - just what I needed! Strangely the function get_file_next_counter() returns the number of the last shot taken, not the next one (which hasn't been taken yet) - at least on my A570 it does.
