    D4 Secondary slot function - Backup Dish full around 35%

    I used Sandisk Extreme Pro 64GB UDMA7 160 MB/S CF card and Lexar 1333X 64GB XQD card.
    If I used only single card either CF or XQD, the D4 will store up to 64 GB.
    If I used dual slots, one is primary and other in secondary slot function - Backup, I will got an error around 20-23GB of data, "Dish Full" about 33% disk capacity? Can not take any more pictures?
    I set to both jpeg+raw files for dual slots.
    My firmware is A 1.10, B 1.10 L 2.009.

    Please help. Thanks

    Were both cards formatted? Were they both on RAW settings? If 1 was RAW and the other JPG-Fine or TIF then they would fill at different speeds.

    I would format both cards - IN CAMERA - when you format in camera, make sure you format each card. You have to give the dial top right a tweak to switch between cards to format and then test again.

    I always used the D4 to format both CF and XQD prior to any photo.
    I need to store both RAW+ Jpeg on both card. If one slot crashed, I still have the second slot.
    1333x XQD and 1066X CF should be able to handle both RAW+Jpeg.

    Have you tried two CF or two XQD cards at the same time rather then mixing them?

    You can't Needa - 1 CF slot and 1 XQD slot.

    Try setting them both to just RAW or both to just JPG

    That's interesting, any idea why both slots aren't the same either CF or XQD? You would think if one is being used as a backup writing to both cards at the same time, the slowest card would set the write speed.
