D5100: Card capacity error
Jun 6, 2013

Using a Silicon Power 2GB 45x SD card in a Nikon D5100 body. Here's the exact card, I didn't buy it from there but that's what mine looks like.

The screen said that the remaining card capacity was 132. I took a random shot and it stayed at 132. It finally went down to 131 after taking 7 shots, then down to 130 after taking another 7 shots, and so on. When I hold down the shutter halfway, it says [r27] and that number has not changed the whole time.

I really need to know the capacity of this card so I can prepare for my vacation. This card is several years old (I just found it laying around in 2012), is it possibly damaged? I don't recall ever having problems with it, but the camera has also never given me problems so I'm not sure which one is having issues.
