I had an older Sony in which I had clicked nearly 600 pictures. When I bought a new Sony it started with numbers starting from 1, that is DSC00001. The older one ended with DSC00668. I wanted it to start with 669 but there was no provision to reset the numbers in this camera.
On a hunch I downloaded the DSC00668.JPG into the new camera and to my surprise the next picture it shot was DSC00669 and so on.
Do not know whether it will work in other cameras :-(
Hope this could help someone with the same requirement.

Thanks for the tip, Sandy. That will surely come in handy when you switch cards between cameras.
I think in the Sony digital camera set-up screen, you can also select the folder number you want to use, like 101MSDCF, 102MSDCF, etc.

Yes, you can select/create a new folder but it would still start at DSC00001. There is now way to reset the numbers to your requirement. In an older Sony I have there is a small reset pin hidden away and that only resets the number to DSC00001. Apparently there is no such button in the DSC-W180 I bought recently.
