'media restore' when auto slot switching from SxS to SDHC

Hi,

I just wanted to report that I had a number of restore errors last week when one card (SxS) ended and it switched to the other slot which had MxR and Transcend combo. Also happened vice versa.

Is this common? It wasn't a huge problem and the rest of the day went fine when it had to switch slots from one MxR to another.

Anyone else noticed this?

cheers,

Gary.

Yes. This is where I have had some errors.

No more MxR for me. I have a Nano on the way.

Same deal here for me.... but how do I restore media when it does not give the the option?

Any thoughts?

As has been highlighted elsewhere today, you shouldn't be mixing cards.

To be honest if you do need the longer shots it's probably easier to use one of the ATP Pro Max 32gb cards. I just hear too many problems from people who span cards. For a start popular wisdom says its good practice never to totally fill a SDHC card (according to the MxM website).
