My D7000 has suddenly decided to make a new folder each day that I shoot. How do I get the camera to stop making new folders and just keep all the pics in the same folder? The manual doesn't address this.

I might sound stupid here, but when I had the same problem it was cause I was constantly changing sd cards, not sure if thats the case for you though.

When was the last time you formatted the card with the camera?

OMG! You have to actually read the user's manual?

I did read it. Page 203 talks about folders, but does not indicate an option to allow/disallow multiple folders.

I don't think I've ever read the D7000 manual. I Googled pretty much everything :greenpbl:

My Pentax does the same thing by default, but I left it like that.
I like being able to go to the daily folder. Instead of fumbling around through everything days passed.

For me it kills my workflow because I use bridge. In bridge, it breaks everything down, but if they are not in the same folder, I have to find where each picture is.

I know with my sony there are options in the image viewing software that it uses to upload where you can select where you want file to be placed. It will either make a new folder or you can choose for it to be placed in a general folder. Check your software and not your camera and you should be able to get it to do what you want.
