I don't have a d5100. There's probably a setting in the "shooting menu"
part of the menu system, to change the "active folder", or allowing you
to select an existing folder or create a new folder number.
For some obscure reason, this is in a completely different part of the
menu system (at least on my nikon dslr) than the file number sequence
settings you've been looking at.
Nikon's menu system drives me nuts. Even after owning and using the
same camera for 5 years, I still have to hunt around - I don't find the
reason that they put settings i.n particular sections of the menu
intuitive at all.
