Resetting File Numbering

I was wandering if there was a way to reset the file numbering on my DL. I know that if I put it on reset everytime I put a new card in it will start from the lowest number the, but Ive only got 2 2gb cards and Ive used them both in the camera so that wont work. Does anyone know if there is another way to reset the file numbering?

File numbering.

The cameras I know assign the number that is next to the highest number on the card.
So put one file on a card with as filename the number before the number you want the camera to begin with, and you should be ok.
I allways format my cards after I re-insert them in the camera. In this way also the filenumbering continues normally.
