XQD Card - Don't Do This
4

I have had a habit of removing my XQD Card to insert it in a USB reader to transfer files to my Mac. I often "Move" the files from the card to a folder via the Mac Finder. And, I sometimes "Move to Trash" (i.e. Delete) files on the card through the Finder as well.

Don't do it! - Move/Delete/Format the XQD via computer.

Only delete and format the card with the camera.

I just had a case where I could review images in camera, but there were no images visible via the USB reader. Solution was to connect the Z to the Mac via the USB cable and transfer images via ViewNX-i.

Reformatting the card in camera made it happy again. What's the saying, "Just because you can, doesn't mean you should!"
