I have my SD card set as an overflow for my CF card. I got to excited while shooting HDR sets here in Acadia yesterday and ran out of CF card space without realizing it. My HDR shots started going to my SD card. To my surprise when I got to the hotel last night, I could not use CS6 Bridge to move the images from my camera to my laptop. The software shows the connection, but does not give me an image count...and the transfer button is grayed out.

I took the CF card out to be sure I was just looking at the SD card.

Is there a trick to retrieving the images from the overflow card?

Do I have to transfer them to a primary CF card before I can transfer them using CS6?

I tried copying them between SD and CF cards inside the camera and could not figure out a way to get that to work.
