I have a 2008 D300. I'm using Lexar Prof UDMA 8GB 300x cards. Recently, I noticed my card was nearly full but forgot to change it out. I never filled a card before.

What happened is the card filled and allowed me to keep shooting, over ridding the previous pics I took. The camera wrote over the other pics without any sort of alert message to me. I would have thought it would have stopped shooting or give some type of alert before all the over writes began. I lost allot of pics this way.

Is this normal function? or is there a setting to make it stop shooting or give some type of alert when a card is full?

Thanks Everyone-
