Good Morning, Hope someone can help. I have a brand new D 7100 that reads my high speed San Disk cards perfectly. However, when I attempt to use my Transcend 32 GB Cards the camera gives me an ERROR message. BTW, the cards work perfectly in my D 7000 and all of my other cameras. Would appreciate your comments if you have had the same experience with the D 7100. My thanks for your help.
Severe lag time in buffer writes were first noted with the D7000 and Transcend cards. There was a sticky posted about that, with times, but my experience (which was typical) was pretty awful: fill the buffer, and with a Transcend card, it would take 35+ seconds to empty.
With a SanDisk card, it's more like 10 seconds.
That thread is probably referenced in the "Resource Thread" at the top of the page.
Given that the 7100 is moving significantly more data through the bus, it doesn't surprise me that the Transcend cards just don't work.
Agreed. And as several others have suggested (and I know from my own experience with the D7100), the SanDisk Extreme Pro with a reported write speed of 95 MB/s is the card to use to clear the buffer as quickly as possible.
I thank all of you for your comments. It would appear that the issue is simply that the D 7100 is "Card Sensitive". The good news is that the camera is working as it should with the right cards. The shame is that I can't use all of my cards with it. Thanks again for your helpful comments. MB
I use a 64 Gig Transcend SDXC card in my D7100 without a problem. Before the D7100, I used the same card in a D5100, also without any problems. When I made the change from D5100 to D7100, the first thing I did after charging the battery was to re-format the card. I'm wondering if that might be the problem? I have considered changing the card to a San Disk, but as everything is working as it should, what the heck!
If you go to the Playback Menu, Playback Folder, and select "All", images taken with another camera will be displayed. I took an image with my D90 and then inserted the card in my D7100 and got "Folder Contains No Images," but by making the change described in sentence 1, I was able to see the D90 image. Found this info on Page 162 of the D90 manual. It's probably somewhere in the D7100 manual also (I'm too lazy to rummage through the larger D7100 manual looking for this info), although I didn't try the reverse because the D7100 card is too large for the D90.
Note that once an image is taken after the "all" setting has been applied, the D7100 will revert to its folder such that in order to see images taken on a card in another camera, you will need to make the change to the playback folder all over again.
