First experience with Eye-fi moby 32GB

I got my Eye-fi card yesterday. In the menu of K-3 I choosed Eye-fi option and Eye-fi select mode. I was facing with a bug. When a pictue is played on LCD and I push the flash setting button under OK (where you can choose between several options) picking the Transfers selected images from Eye-fi card menu, I got a memory card error message. Actually the file transfer is working between the camera and/or tablet/pc. Only this Eye-fi image transfer option did not work.

Has anyone experienced similar problem?
Eye-fi moby 32GB class10
Was K-3 firmware 1.00

Actually I will, but I think it's a problem of compatibility, because the camera sees the Eye-fi card, works with it, after shoot uploads the images,except this function doesnt work what I typed a day ago.

I just wanted to let you know the problems before you buy a same card for your k-3.

Before i ordered checked out the compatibility list of cameras there wasnt any issue about k3 with x2 was only k5 incompatibility problems with x2 so I bought mobi 32GB rather instead of x2 16GB which are same prices

I think the eye-fi is a bit harder for operating. You should check out my ravpower filehud. It shares the same function with the ei-fi card and is easier to use. More improtantly, it can be used as an external battery charger for emergencies.

I have the PRO card from eye-fi but not yet worked with it. I will look into it over the weekend if I got the time. I put it in the K-3 and it is recogniced by the camera but had no wifi at that location that time.

I had set up an Eye-Fi Pro with my K-01 and Q. When I insserted that card in the K3 it instantly sync'ed to my home Wi-Fi network and the Wi-Fi icon instantly appeared in the LCD. The Menus were enabled and I could switch to direct link to my phone or tablet when out of network range, or switch to cloud link over cellular network.

Very smooth.
