D800 showing incorrect card capacity
Dec 19, 2012

I have an odd issue with my D800. I am using a Lexar Proffessional 1000X UDMA 7 32GB compact flash card. I shoot uncompressed RAW. When I put the card into the camera it shows a capacity of 400. However I know for a fact that the actual capacity is 625 raw images because when I began to suspect that the 400 figure was not accurate I set the camera up to shoot a series of shots until the card was full and when full the card contained 625 raw files.

Does anybody know why the camera is showing an inaccurate figure for capacity of the card and how to fix it?
