Do 128 Gig sd cards work in the NX5u

I have been considering getting some 128 Gig SD cards for my NX5U.

Has anyone tested to see if they work?

I know 64Gig works, because I have done it, but I and looking at the 128.

So I decided to test the 128 gig sd card and here are my results.

I have 4 NX5U cameras. I bought 2 one year and 2 the next.
The oldest 2 do not recognize the 128gig.

The newer 2 DO recognize the 128 gig cards.


I wonder if the difference is the firmware? Does anyone know how to check the firmware level on the camera? I have been unsuccessful at getting any of my cameras to accept the version 4 firmware.

In case anyone beside me is readying this post.

I upgraded my old cameras to the version 4 firmware and now they can use 128 gig sd cards.

Thanks for the update. I did seem like someone else has updated and was able to use the higher cap. I've also been reading that a few are struggling with the update to 4.0. Is there a trick to getting it done?

Glad you asked.

Yes there are two tricks you must know. These are in addition to the instructions provided by Sony.

1. You must start with an SD card in slot a. It won't be used, so it can be empty or full, but an error will happen later that is not obviously related.

2. There is a step that says reset the camera. But doesn't tell you how. At this point, you push a paperclip into the hole on top of the camera where the control buttons are located.

Thanks, John. That is EXACTLY the info that would make all the difference in the world. Too bad Sony doesn't add that to the process.
Just ordered mine and will get it Thursday. Hopefully it will updated already, but just in caseā€¦
