Ever try to read the label on a card when it is inserted in the USB drive? You can't..
This was precisely the reason I stopped reformatting mine. It annoyed me no end that I had set card #1 Card #2 etc and then eveytime I got back into Clip Browser I had it untitled again. Once I realised it was my mistake I stopped and now it's much simpler to organise everything in post.
