Hello, I am the Product Marketing Manager at Lexar and we have worked closely with Nikon to provide a support process and resolution for this firmware issue, as it was previously determined that a very small percentage of Lexar CompactFlash cards produced over 18 months ago are incompatible with Nikon’s newest firmware release. If you have gone through the identification process and deemed your product incompatible with the latest firmware update, please contact Lexar’s customer service group and we will replace your card with no questions asked. We want you to get back to capturing life’s important moments as quickly as possible, and Lexar remains committed to providing the highest quality memory card products in the market.

sono andato dal mio Dealer a Brescia per un test con la nuova D4S e ho portato con me una mia scheda già iniziata sulla mia D3S.
Il problema si è identificato perchè la Camera, dava errore per scheda danneggiata o incompatibile. Per fare il test ho dovuto sostituirla con una nuova.
Non ho ancora verificato il numero della scheda e la sequenza, perchè ho letto adesso la notizia, appena a casa la verificherò.
Intanto grazie a Lexar e a Nikon.
La D4S la acquisto e naturalmente sarà equipaggiata di schede LEXAR!
