    Sony XQD card just stop working

    Sony XQD card just stop working
    I called Sony and told them that my XQD card started giving me this message in my card reader and in my camera. He said the bad news is it can't be fixed but the good news is it has a five year warranty so he gave me a case number and told me to send it in for a replacement. A special thank you to B&H Camera for giving me access to all my receipts which is needed for a warranty replacement. Sent it off today and I will give you an update when I receive the new card.

    Possibly why Nikon are adding CFexpress to the Z series, because XQP are not failure proof.

    You should consider contacting Nikon to let them know. I doubt they will do anything for you, but you could ask them to log the information. You should be able to open a case and upload this pic for them to see. Just a suggestion....

    I am not actively shooting weddings but this is what I did when shooting with D7K (I had two at the time) I would rotate the cards from job to job. Slot 1 was getting the images then at the next wedding what was used in Slot 1 was moved to Slot 2. All cards were formatted in camera. After the wedding season those cards were replaced with new ones. The older cards were used for portrait (remember in a portrait session you can do over as long as the client is not on his/her death bed) or personal use. I did this with my previous equipment. Yes its expensive but at least you have some sense of security.
    It really does not matter if it's a card, a SSD drive or a mechanical rotating drive all of them have finite life of read and writes before a MTBF (mean time between failures) in read and write and also insertions. Look at the card if you remove like I do you can see wear and I imagine also in camera.
    Even my 2012 iMac has an imminent hard drive failure when I got a SMART warning; I had to crack it open and replace the drive. Everything will eventually fail that's why when I did wedding I had 5 bodies, 5 flashes, etc so in event of a failure I had a back up. I learned this early on when a Mamiya C330 failed, I had to use the Mamiya C220 backup plus a Nikon FM.
    Whats that's saying about the eggs in one basket is so true.

    The first job I had out of high school back in 1970 was shooting with a Mamiya C330 and it was to shoot candids around a resort. Ahhhh the memories.

    The camera is fine it is the card that is the problem. My other card works fine in the card reader and the camera.
