    Ok, just put a new rom on my DX (DARKSLIDE to be exact) but now when I use the camera it doesn't save the pics correctly. All I see is a gray box where the pic should be. Any ideas???

    Even on new pics? It was a shot in the dark but I've had that happen a few times and re seating the SD always worked.

    Save off all you information from the sdcard to your PC and format the sdcard. The put your data back.

    If you are having this problem try turning the "save location" setting on the camera off. From what I see if the camera doesn't have a good GPS lock it won't save the picture. Can't guarantee it but it works for me.
