I have recently purchased a nearly new, less than 25,000 clicks, D3x. I have in it as my 1st card a SanDisk Extreme Pro 160 MB, UDMA7 32 G card. And I have tried other cards, so I don't think it is a card issue. The second card is set to overflow from the first and I am shooting RAW only.

When I adjust Low Continuous shooting speed between 1 and 3, it responds. Between 3 and 5, no difference. The High Continuous setting never gets it to be different than 3 per second. The Menu changes but the speed in High is never there above 3/sec.

If, however I shoot in JPEG, it fires as I expect at the much faster High setting.

What am I missing or is this a normal consequence of shooting in RAW due to the file size no matter what the card and settings??

I found out when yesterday for the first time when I used High Continuous to capture an owl, and I expected many more shots per second. Really hate to give up RAW to get the faster shots per second.
