I recently shot about 60 photos with the d7000. I had it set up so the second SD card was backup.

When I popped out the card in slot number one the photos I had just taken were not there.

I looked at the second card and they were there.

The first card in the camera did not show the photos also.

What happened? I shoot backup with NEF and Jpeg.

How can I fix this?

Is it a problem with the card itself? What card are you using? Have you tried swapping them to see if you get the same behaviour?

Which slot is set to primary? And was the card write protected? Was the card formatted in the camera prior to use?

I don't think it is the cards. I just tried it again and the shot went to both cards I think I will shoot a bunch of test shots and see what happens.

Slot one is the primary and slot two is designated as backup. The card was not formatted before using.

Is that something I should to do to all new cards?

Yes. Every time I put a card in my camera (new or otherwise) I format it on the camera. Formatting the card on the computer can be problematic. It may work 20 times in a row and then come up with errors.

If I format it in the camera, I know it's formatted correctly for that camera.
