Okay, I'm baffled.
With my 5D MkIII when I used two memory cards I had it set so that Card 1 would fill & then the camera would start writing to Card 2 automatically.
I cannot for the life of me get my MkIV to do the same.

It is either;
- Duplicating images on both cards
or
- Writing/reading to one card only ignoring the other.

Sorry to be asking such a dufus question but can someone please tell me which setting(s) I need to change to have it auto-switch?
I ***think*** I've tried everything but obviously not as I can't get it to work...

if you look at page 166 of your manual it seems to explain it...it looks like under the wrench 1 tab, you can set 'record func+card/folder sel.'...hit that, hit 'record func.' and it looks like you're looking for 'auto switch card'

but i dunno...i don't have a 5DIV...

Thanks guys.
I had that set yet still it seems to be duplicating files & other weird things.
I may have to do a reset to factory settings or something as it's all very odd.
Cheers

Do you understand that in standard mode, the file is written to the 'selected' card?

  • In Standard mode, the image is written to the card selected in 'Record/Play'
  • In Auto Switch mode, the image is also written to the card selected in 'Record/Play' but when that card it full it switches to the second card.

You need to give me OK to edit your image and repost!
