Hi John,

Welcome to Nikonians!

I have not heard of a camera overwriting images on a full card before.

Have your friend go into the Camera Menu
> Custom Settings Menu (Pencil icon)
>f4 Slot Empty Release Lock
Set it to Release locked
This will prevent the shutter from releasing when there is no memory card in the camera and I suspect possibly when the memory card in the camera is full.

When it is set to Enable release the shutter will release with no memory card in the camera (and I suspect with a full memory card in the camera) and while the image will not be recorded, it will be displayed in the LCD monitor in Demo mode.

My best guess is f4 is Enabled in your friends camera and the while the new images are being displayed in the monitor, they are not being recorded.

Best Regards,
Marty
