Leica Finds the Cause of SD Card/M9 Incompatibility

October 12th, 2011

Leica-M9-SD-Issues.jpgBack in August photographers started to
notice a startling trend with their Leica M9s. Card after card would
not only become incompatible with the camera, but cause your data to
be wiped from it to boot.

Leica says that they’ve tracked down
the issue and will be addressing it in a future firmware update. Of
course, just because a fix has been found doesn’t mean you’re going
to get it right away.

“In the coming weeks we will test
a beta version of the firmware in practice in cooperation with
affected and selected customers,” says Leica. As far as the
reason for delay they say that “to ensure compatibility with as
many cards as possible and to ensure that all the related processes
remain fault-free and are not compromised, comprehensive testing must
be carried out in the development phase.”

There’s no specific date for the
firmware update yet, so M9 owners will have to be happy with “soon”
for now.
