How to copy settings from a D800 to a D800E - I tried to ask this question before and I was cut off and told to post here. So I will try again.
I was wondering if anyone knew the limitations of saving the settings under store and then moving the CF card to another camera. Specifically from a D800 to a D800E. Does the firmware need to be all the same? The D800E only has L 1.04 but the 800 is at 1.06. A and B are the same. When I put the card from the D800 into the D800E, the camera has grayed out the load. I see NCSETUP8.BIN and NIKON001.DSC. Which one is the setup file that it can't see. Does it need to be in a certain directory? Does it only work with a certain size of CF or SD card?
I would appreciate the help. The manual makes it sounds like it should just work. I agree - but it doesn't.
Thanks for helping
That sounds like a Nikon question. I'm not sure how much difference the "E" adds to the back end processing. Personally I would just put both cameras side by side or write it down and go through everything. What might take you a few hours to figure out if you can copy the settings, could be resolved in just 30mins of doing it by hand. Kind of like renting a back-hoe Post hole digger for one fence post. You could dig it, install it and the concrete set before you could figure out how to get the feet down on the backhoe. :)
