Hi all,

New member in need of help. I have had my D80 for several years and had no problems. However the last day of vacation a few days back all of a sudden CHR/CHA is shown in the display after having shot a full day with no problems. It will not display any photos - says "Folder contains no images" - I try to take a new picture, and it displays in normally. When I turn off the camera and on again, again it displays "Folder contains no images". I tried to move the SD card to my other camera, and there it also says no images. I thought maybe when i got home and connected to my pc i could see the pics, but there seems to be nothing there

Are all my photos lost? Luckily I had just changed card, so it's "just" this one day, but still, there were some great shots, so if someone knows if it is possible to retrieve them, I would be greatful!

I have tried flipping the locked/unlock slider on the card, with no result..

Br, Sofie
