I had the same problem and fixed it! There is a small resistor just to the left of the menu button that was misaligned in theproduction process and the slightest amount of shock(i.e. small drop or maybe even bumping the camera with your hand) wouldbust the resistor's connection loose.
I basically just pulled the cover off, removed the old resistor and bridged the two points and that fixed it.

I am putting a more detailed HOWTO on the front page of my site, you can view it without making an account, but feel free to if you want. I hope this helps a few people. is my site, I also took a few pics and should have them up tomorrow.

    It worked for me too. Although I was not able to 'bridged the two points' where the connector use to be, I carefully laid a small flat head screwdriver to bridge them temporarily and then pressed the (internally) menu button to access it and tell the camera to only use the internal memory when no SD card is in.

Try cleaning it with a soft cloth, press it severel times or try shake it a little bit.Anything pointy (not metal) would help u clean the button.As a last resort I recomand disassambing the part with the button, but that could be tricky...

win 10 up grades are causing problems
it is better if you get win 10 and instal it as a stand alone rather than an upgrade

The FUNC button in the D80 does not work

In the menu settings, you need to assign the Func button to do something. The Func button alone will not operate until you assign a task. The tasks available are listed in the menu setting for the Func button.

PC locked up during/after ipod nano sync

are you using iTunes 8
version 8 is the buggiest version of iTunes yet.
I don;t think your alone with your problem.
Try putting you ipod in disk mode before you sync it.
to do that, Press and Hold the Menu and Center buttons until the Apple Logo appears on the screen.
Then quickly move your fingers to the Center and Play/Pause buttons until a check mark appears on the screen.
Connect it to iTunes and see if it helps,

Also, you may want to run a spyware program on your computer. you can find a free one at
often times when you get a bunch of spyware and junk in your computer it will act like your problem.
