I have two 4-gig cards. My setup is slot-2 is overflow, pictures are NEFs, high quality. If I install any one of the cards into slot-1 or slot-2, the camera shows a capacity of 111 pictures (about 36mB per picture). If I install both cards, I still see a capacity of only 111 pictures (I would have expected about 222 pictures). I can take pictures and playback on any one card without problems. It appears that the camera reports status for slot-1 only.

This is just an observation, but if slot-2 is overflow to slot-1, I would have expected the sum of both cards. Can anyone confirm my operations?
