Back story: I've done quite a bit of research on my issue and I still can't figure it out (Googled, bought three books, spoke to Nikon tech support and more).

I have a D7100, SB-910 and Nikkor lenses. I have two SD 68GB Sandisk Extreme cards installed. I have fully charged batteries in the camera and in the Nikon battery pack. Whether I use P,A,S, M, with/without the Speedlight or built-in flash, and no matter what lens I use, I can only take one picture at a time. I must wait 10-15 seconds (at least) before I can take another picture. I know there's room in the buffer for at least 5-6 more images, so that's not it. I've checked all the settings: tried using some customized and also in default mode. I can take a sequence of images using the continuous modes.

I spoke to Nikon tech support and the brusque person I spoke to couldn't solve the issue (he did not sound like he knew what he was talking about). He told me the camera was probably defective. I sent it back and got a new one and I'm still having the same issue.

I did not have this problem the first couple of days after getting the camera(s). Why can't I take 2-3-4 pictures in a row (when not in C, CL modes)?

I'm really frustrated. What am I doing wrong?
