I've encountered some problems with the CF memory card I have in my D800. I generally work under Linux, and with my D90, I can read memory cards using Linux. My D800 has a CF card set to raw (NEF) format with back up as jpegs on an SD card, I find I can't read the CF card under Linux. The last time I tried, it couldn't transfer some files using a card reader, so I shifted to a Windows computer. That complained about the card and offered to scan it and fix the problems, but in the process it wiped out all the raw images. Fortunately, I still had jpeg images on the SD card, so all was not lost.

Formatting the CF card in the camera didn't seem to fix the problem, so I formatted it under Windows, and then formatted it again in the camera. It now seems okay.

Any helpful comments would be appreciated.I want to get another CF card to use if I encounter problems again. Which card would you recommend?
