32G memory card slowness - problem of camera or card?
May 14, 2012

I have a 266X Kingston CF in my Nikon D200. Each time I want to view a picture it took 1~2 seconds to load (no slowness when viewing next picture. only with original load). Never see this slowness with my Sandisk 8G 30M/s Card but 266X is supposed to be faster (40M/s)

Recently noticed the same problem with my Panasonic LX5 that has a 32G centon class 10 card, after taking many videos. Doesn't seem to have the problem when the card is empty.

Is this a problem of the cameras themselves? when the disk capacity is large they become slow to find the files? or it is the problem with the cards.
thanks in advance
