Hi sorry for a boring post.
I use a D600 for the last year and a half. It says its got the latest firmware of C 1.01 (from what i have read on the Nikon site thats the latest firmware).
I usually carry 2 SD cards of various brands in the camera incase one runs out mid shoot.
Two months ago I noticed the D600 saying the SD cards were full before they should have been by saying I only have between 1 and 65 shots left when I know the blank cards should hold around 260 images based on my settings (I shoot RAW/NEF and one JPEG in basic. No matter what brand of new SD card I put in or how I format old cards the camera is stuck saying I can only take x number of images until it has counted down to 1 and I can't use the camera.
I have tried reformatting the cards in the camera hundreds of times in the camera and on my Mac book (OSX 10.9.2) and on a windows book (7 Starter) in both FAT and NTFS to no avail.
I have bought various new SD cards and when the camera is stuck in this mode it reads all new SD cards as only having the X amount of space left on them regardless of how new or unused or re formatted the card is.
I was once able to clear the error message on the D60 once but i didn't know how i did it.
I sent the D600 to Nikon but they said they were unable to recreate the problem in their workshop and Im reluctant to send it back to them if they can't help and they had the camera for over a months. when I got the camera back it let me take photos for a few days with the correct amount of storage space left on the card but now the errors back and I'm down to "30 images"
Any ideas? Someone said it might be the SD cards but the old ones worked fine until 2 months ago and it shouldn't affect brand new SD cards.
I use cards- Kingston SDHC, Sandisc SDHC and Transcend SDHC 16G size
thanks in advance
