Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.
Your camera is only supporting SD/MMC Cards (up to 1 GB)
The card that you currently have might be faulty. Please try another card.
You might also need to switch the camera over to saving pictures directly onto the SD card. 1: Menu 2: Cam settings 3: Chose AUTO or SD card option Press OK
Note: If the SD card isn't in the camera or is unreadable the camera will automatically go back to saving you taken pictures on the internal memory.
You need to test the SD card to make sure it's reading OK. Next step if it is OK, reformat the card and copy the files from the original cd that came with the unit, on to the SD card and that should fix the problem. If the SD card is defective, just get a new 1 or 2 gig SD card and copy the files on that card. It's ALWAYS helpful to have an extra SD card as a backup. If you don't have the original cd, I have the original as well as the new N30 version software for the Nav-Cam 2007. Joe
