"card full at 60 pictures"

On behalf of a friend. He has a d5000. He calls the memory card a stick and tells me, casually, today, that his stick or card gives a warning and fills up at around 60 pictures. He claims that this is not right and I myself couldn't imagine why. Maybe this sounds like something recognizable? I just do not have his model camera. Thanks if this rings a bell, so to speak.
I simply tell him is some has an idea.

First questions to ask: What size is the card and what shooting mode is he using? With RAW + JPEG Fine Large and a small card maybe this could happen. Also if he is saving TIFF files this could happen.

Next: Is there anything else that he might have written to the card from his computer? These files would not show in the camera.

Finally: Have him do a format in camera and then look at the remaining exposure estimate on the top display. This number is almost always very conservative.
