That is exactly why using a card reader puzzles me. Cable transfer provides much less strain/risk and I have not been able to discern the reason for the use of a card reader in lieu of the method designed and provided by Nikon. I actually back up twice. I use a second CF card in my D3s, copy to the computer and retain the CF card properly marked as secondary storage. CF cards are about as fool proof as one can get until one gets to SSD.
