The naming of files on a card is simple, just a number. Reformat a card a use a new one and the same sequence of numbers will start again from 00001.mts for instance. Do this a few times and, at best, you have several flders containing the same file neames and, at worst, some files may have been overwritten.
It is better to copy the files from the SD card to a new folder on the hard drive and then rename them according to date, topic or whatever.
I have a Panasonic cam and use their HDWriter to import the files and rename them automatically. Studio is then not confused by having files with the same name.
