Having problems with your Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens ?

Memory card wiped clean

\015 I purchased my D80 on 07/03/08 fitted with a 4mb memory card.I Have used the camera since then no problem.However 2 weeks ago I took some shots whilst on holiday in France I then put the camera back in my camera bag under the seat of my car.A couple of days later I took out the camera again and the letters CHR appeared in the control panel where normally the number of exposures are shown. Also when I tried to view previous photographs the words THIS CARD CAN NOT BE USED were shown.I phoned my camera shop in manchester to see if they could help they suggested I fit a new card which I have now done and the camera is working fine again.When I returned home I took my camera into my dealer who put the card into their computer and said the card had been wiped clean.I have lost around 400 images from 2 holiday destinations as a result.When the camera was placed under the seat of my car I placed a sat nav next to it which was turned on could this be the cause? my camera dealer says no but I am not so sure.If they are right then I am very worried that this problem could happen again please advise\015

"Please describe your clean terminal xd card dry cloth problem": Well, that is exactly what my Olympus camera tells me to do whenever I switch it on! No amount of wiping makes any difference.

The shop said there is nothing that anyone can do. Please prove me wrong! By the way, the card is an Oly
