Try to make a full reset (the manual somewhere tells how to do it). If this doesn't cure it, try another SD card.
If these steps don't help, you'll have to wait if there is some K-30 owner responding who had a similar problem (and, hopefully, solved it).

EDIT: Also, problems with the batteries can cause all kind of weird errors.

Hello Hendrik

Based on what you're describing, it could be an issue related to write speed to the SD card. I trust you have a good, fast SDHC / SDXC card in there?
Are you on the latest firmware update? (1.04)
Lastly, is your battery fully charged?

Good luck!
Hoop dis so iets eenvoudig!

Regards,
Mark

Hendrik, I agree with Mark, before I did the firmware update to 1.04, I had the same problems, but after that everything is fine...
