Default Simrad NSE not reading card

My buddy has a Simrad NSE 8 and while it does offer "Navionics" as a cartography option...it does not read the card....I even removed the card from the slot..and also removed and reinserted the micro card into the adapter card. Any Ideas?

In the menu did your buddy choose Chart> Chart Data.^ Navionics ?

(Looking at the menu images in the NSE operation manual p 19 . Text is unrelated to your issue.)

I don't know for sure the NSE would not automatically recognize the chartware source, but this is worth a try.... as long as his chart chip is not a copy which would have erased the original chip and kept the copy blank I believe, without special knowledge.

I was on the boat, and yes i did select chart data.."Navionics" but nothing...actually lost detail from the built in "Simrad" charts.

I dont think it recognizes that there is a chip...it does allow me to select "navionics" and I actually get less mapping....if I install chip when machine is on..ir does nto say "loading maps"

No one else has a card reader issue? That would be good news...
