Re: Transcend Wifi SD card not working with 5D Mk III

I hate to state the obvious but did you read the quick start guide that came with the card? I have both the Transcend card and Eye-Fi card and the Transcend is a little more complicated, trickier to get working.

There's a file on the card that should get it going. It's a JPEG that you should be able to see on the camera back. Once you follow all the steps on the Quick Start Guide you select that file and delete. That *should* turn the wifi on. Of course your laptop, iPad, iPhone whatever also has to be configured to receive files from the card.

I say *should* because I had to go through the setup procedure several times before it worked for me. Once you have it set up, you turn it on by deleting a file. (Which, frankly, makes almost no sense to me but it's right there in the Quick Start) so I always shoot a junk file before I use the Transcend card.

Good luck.
