This is more of an annoyance than a disaster.

Every so often I'll take a shot, press the playback button to review it, and nothing happens. Repeatedly press....nothing.

Switch camera off and on, and the button starts working normally, more importantly, the shot I took is present so I'm capturing the image.

My initial thoughts were that this was happening more often with a particular Lexar 128GB SD card. I reformatted it, no change, so marked it with a sharpie and have avoided using it since.

Happened again last night with my other 'good' Lexar 128GB card.

Now I'm wondering if it's a software fault or if my camera just doesn't like Lexar 1667x SD cards.

Anyone else seen this?

Hi John. No, just an in camera format - that's the only type of format I've ever done.

I could of course be barking up the wrong tree with cards. I certainly don't have enough evidence to trash Lexar branded cards.

I'm basing my idea on the thought that it's not likely to be a hardware issue, so, there's not much left to blame :)

Download SDFormatter from the official SD web site.

Do a long format on each card. This will take hours.

Then 'Format' the card in the camera it will be used in.

In-camera formats don't actually format the card, they just erase the Fat32 data. The rest of the data is actually untouched.

Thanks. I'll give it a whirl with the one I condemned.
