Hello! I recently bought a sony A7S3 and i encounter following issue: allthough i fomated both my SD cards (Sony Tough V90 300 mbps) in the camera, the two folders DCIM a&nd PRIVATE do not appear. Instead, I have a folder with the date of today in which the footage appears. I tried the 'Proxy' feature in the camera, (I've put in on 'on'), but once again, in the file structure on my SD cards, no folder is available in which these proxy files are to be found? Anyone an idea how to solve this?
