Thank you, yes that would be the issue. I have not even tried the record feature on the 997 yet(even though I hav ehad the unti for 2 seasons). I mistakenly thought that the image viewers were also for screenshots. I guess I will have to try the record feature this year.
One other question if I may: Is there a way to save the waypoint coordinates onto the SD card or
do you have to connect the unit to your PC with a usb cable?
The only files that can be converted to xtf are in the record folder. There are also .DAT files in the snapshot folder for each image. These are only for the snapshot images and cannot be converted.
So you need to make sure you are pointing to a .DAT in the record folder.
Hope that helps.
