In camera raw conversion creating new folders

When using in camera raw conversion with my new Pentax K50 the jpeg files are put into a new folder (named ***PENTX) and any subsequent new shots (raw or jpeg) are put into this new folder. Is there a way to store the jpeg files in the same folder as the raw files?

That's interesting. By default, the K-50 stores images in folders with the date in the name. So photos taken today would be in something like 101_0409. I assume you haven't changed the default setting, but your other folder name choice would have been 101_PENTX, or you can choose your own letters. The manual only mentions two times where the camera might start putting images in new folders. The date changes so tomorrow's shots go into 101-0410. Or if one folder has about 500 images, it'll start a new folder, like 102_0409. Something is making your camera switch folder naming conventions instead of changing the number or date.

You could try changing the default setting to PENTX in the Set-up 2 menu and see if your developed images stay in the same folder then. Or the standard suggestions when we're stumped - a new card, known brand, formatted in the camera.

I develop images in-camera when I'm bored - on a plane, waiting for my wife, etc.

Thanks Dave. It seems I was right at the 500 image limit and that's why the processed jpegs went into a new folder.
Tried again and they store in the same folder now. Much appreciated.
