Eye-Fi releases updated firmware

Yesterday, after 7 months, Eye-Fi released a firmware update for their X2 card.

v5.2006 (3 Sep 2013)
Fixes:

  • Resolves compatibility with some newer generation Nikon cameras
  • Resolves delayed media scan bug causing delay in sending photos in some cases
  • Rare private partition corruption bug resolved
  • Olympus OM-D E-M5 random card error issue resolved
  • Eye-Fi Connected stability and speed enhancements
  • General bug fixes and card performance optimizations
Some of our customers have reported issues with their cards over the last couple of months.  Upload times getting slower and slower and just not at all.  The fix: We updated the firmware on each card.  Then we noticed the antivirus was aggressively scanning the photo destination folder.  We created an exclusion for that folder in the AV product and photos began coming in within 4 seconds of taking them.
