Dual card - Pictures won't continue onto 2nd card

I recently upgraded to a Nikon D7000, which has dual SD cards. I have two 16GB cards which, until recently, I thought was more room than I'd ever need. In fact, I never thought I'd need more than one of those cards. Then I started shooting star trails and ran into an issue. I ran into this issue last weekend, and then again about 2 minutes ago...

The camera is set to use the 2nd card as a rollover, not a backup. When the first card runs out of room, the 2nd card should start storing all new pictures. It's not working, though. When the first card runs out of room, my camera just stops taking photos. I just walked out to check on my shot, only to find that it was no longer shooting. Help, please!
