Transfer files from Slot 1 to Slot 2 (Flucard)

Hello,

On the K3, can you transfer photos from SD card Slot 1 to Slot 2? My ultimate goal would be to have a large capacity, fast SD card in Slot 1, and a Flucard in Slot 2 for overflow and for transferring photos to another device.

Essentially, I want the ability to transfer photos wirelessly from a K3, but not be limited by slow write times and only 16gb storage. My understanding is the image must be physically on the Flucard for wireless transfer. Also, the tethering is great, but the wifi transfer is of most importance to me.

If photo transfer between slots is not possible, does anyone have any other ideas?

Thank you.

You can't transfer images from one card to the other using the flucard, nor can you browse files on sd1. You can, however, copy images from one card to the other via the playback retouch menu. You can also send JPEGs to the flucard and RAWs to the faster card while shooting so that you can use the wifi for a quick preview, then download the good shots later.
