Nikon D810 exposure group failure

Question

Hello, can someone advise me why I can only take one exposure of a group containing more than one exposure  when shutter = Bulb  with my Nikon D810?? I tried the older 2015 initiation and the 2016 initiation, with the same result. I've also updated the firmware to the latest version.

Camera settings are as follows:  Dial set for a Single exposure, Menu  item Electronic Front Curtain Synch = on, Auto Focus off, ISO Manual. Note: I tried it with Electronic Front Curtain Synch set to off, it doesn't matter.

BYN  Exposure settings - 2 Exposures,  Shutter = Bulb, f1.4, 1 second, ISO 1600,  no pause, mirror  lock = 0.

When I initiate the exposure the display says 1 of 2, the image is taken, then I see Aborting flash briefly on the screen, then Busy flashes, then the first image is downloaded, then I get a windows error sound. End of sequence.

I tried multiple exposures with Shutter=1 second and all the exposures work fine, it just doesn't work on the Bulb setting.

Thanks

Claude

I found the problem! Thank you for advising me to reset the camera to the default settings, everything started working right away. I slowly enabled the desirable parameters and tested the BYN multiple exposures group function. When I turned on LENR the problem described in the original email showed up. So the problem is when LENR is turned ON; the first image in the sequence is taken, downloaded and the sequence then aborts. I tried to lengthen the BYN Pause parameter to allow for LENR processing but the problem still persisted. So using in-camera noise reduction is not possible at this time (: .    I suppose that is what stacking, dark frames, flat frames and all that other fun stuff is all about.

So thank you for helping find the issue.

I have BYN mirror lock at 0, camera on Single Frame, D810 Electronic Front Current enabled in menu setup. It takes one image,  flashes busy / abort then I hear an alarm for each of the frames in the group. Then the image downloads. My camera firmware is not the most up to date would that make a difference?
