strange experience with 8Gb CF sandisk card...

Postby Stany Buyle » Mon 10 Nov 2008 10:05

I purchased a sandisk 8Gb extreme card. After a shoot and formatting in camera it showed only 4Gb space. In the camera it showed space for approx 150NEF 14-bit files. Re-formatting didn't help... Also in my card reader it showed 4Gb...

After that I formated the card in my PC in NTFC and then it showed 8Gb. Putting back in my camera "for" blinks while camera can't handle NTFS and I formated again in camera and now it shows again 310 shots...

Strange... Did anybody have the same experience?
kindest regards,

What capacity, in Gb, does it show now? Have you resolved this?
My immediate thought was that there are a lot of fake Sandisk cards knocking around but that's only one explanation.

The problem is solved underwhile, it shows 8Gb. I think the problem came from using that same card on the Canon5DMkII presentation, being used unformatted in both cameras, but that's just another possibility...
