Known Issues

  • The ideal settings to make your Eye-Fi Card most effective with the Nikon D40 and D40x are described here. Eye-Fi suggests setting the camera "Auto Meter Off" setting to 30 minutes which provides adequate time for wireless transfers to complete.

    Due to a firmware issue specific to how these cameras manage power, the suggested power settings will be ignored once a photo is taken. The camera firmware for the Nikon D40 and D40x overrides the power settings and defaults to a 4 second image review setting once a picture is taken. Because the image review setting is automatically adjusted, the camera then cuts power to the SD card slot effectively disabling Eye-Fi Card transfers. To revert the camera to the desired 30 minutes "Auto Meter Off" setting, turn your camera off & on again for wireless uploads to continue. This known issue is present in Eye-Fi X2 Cards.
