I have yet to try what you're doing, but I do know when you write video back to a SxS card you have to put the card in your camera and then go to the "Others" menu and select "Clip" and then "Update" before you can see the video you put on the card. Maybe you need to do something similar with your camera data too?

Like the MP4 files, the SUF file has to be in a specific location (folder structure) for the camera to recognize it.

Do a save of the current parameters, then use your computer to find the SUF file the camera just created and replace it with the one you saved of your settings.

Hope that works.

Should definitely work- I've done it before.
It's indeed a smart move to keep a copy of the most recent SUF on your computer.

Thanks y´all

I figured out that the camera couldn't find the path to the SUF file, so I did just that, did a Camera Data store, deleted that SUF and replaced with my original one

Thanks anyway, maybe the discussion helped some others along the way
