Hello, I am having the following problem with D800...I set my D800 to take raw photo only using "qual" button on top, and, in the shooting menu, I have option to record nef on cf card, and jpg on sd card selected. When I take a photo, my camera records nef files on both cards. The only way I can avoid this behavior is if I set option that sd card is used for overflow and jpg.

Also, if I set it to overflow, and top lcd can read, for example, "raw + basic" but I don't get jpg written to sd card...nothing is written. The only way I can get jpg is if I make sure that top lcd and shooting menu are synched.

Is this normal behavior or am I doing something wrong?

I have mine set to record raw + basic. Primary slot selection is CF. Secondary slot function is RAW primary and JPEG secondary. I get RAW on the CF and JPEG on the SD. Perhaps give a different CF card a try?

Mine works the same. But can you try setting only raw on top lcd, and leave the rest?

I get 2 nefs!

When I do that I get a raw on both the CF and SD....

Exactly! It sucks if you don't know it is happening and suddenly, card is full for no reason!
