Hi there,

I have my primary slot set up to use CF and secondary card as 'Overflow' (and video).

On two occasions now, I have discovered that when my CF card fills up, the following occurs:

1) the D300s continues to shoot, but I may or may not get an error message in my viewfinder.
2) If I use the Playback button to review my photos, I get an error about "cannot read card".
3) I had to manually set Primary Slot to SD to enable images to be stored on the SD card.

I thought the whole idea of "overflow" is when the primary slot fills up, it automatically switches over to the secondary slot?

Has anyone else encountered this problem?

Thanks.

Regards,
Bevan
