Nikon released a firmware update today for the D5100 and D7000 that will resolve some issues regarding ultra-high-speed memory cards.

Download Firmware Update A: 1.0.2 / B:1.03 for the Nikon D5100 and D7000.

In addition to the memory card issue, Firmware Update A: 1.0.2 / B:1.03  fixes issues that occurred when the mode dial was rotated from U1 or U2 to another shooting mode or from another shooting mode to U1 or U2 when the power was off or when the exposure meters are off (Auto meter-off).

These issues were:

A new folder is sometimes created despite the fact that the current folder does not yet contain 999 files and none of the files are numbered “9999”.
The number of remaining exposures may not be displayed as specified in the settings.
The setting for Role played by card in Slot 2 may change between Overflow, Backup, and RAW Slot 1- JPEG Slot 2.

Other issues that have been fixed in this update:

   

An issue where Battery info in the setup menu sometimes showed sufficient remaining charge even when the remaining charge for the AA batteries inserted in the MB-D11 battery pack was low has been resolved.
   

An issue where a saved photo may not have been displayed properly when a movie was displayed in playback mode while saving the photo has been resolved.
   

An issue where zoom in or zoom out may not have performed properly when the playback zoom in or playback zoom out button was pressed while in Live view has been resolved.
   

The message displayed when the internal memory of the Wireless Transmitter WT-4 is formatted from the Format transmitter's memory under Device settings in Wireless transmitter of the camera’s setup menu was changed from Done to Built-in memory formatted.
