Copying Navionics Gold charts from SD to CF?

Hi,
I am looking to buy the Navionics Gold East Cost chart kit for my new Raymarine plotter. I found the charts I need for locally for a great price - but the charts are on a SD (secure digital) card, which does not fit my plotter (it needs compact flash).
Is it possible to copy the charts off the SD card, and onto a CF card? Will this work, or is there some kind of copy protection?

No, probably not... Navionics uses a proprietary card format and card reader.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

It would really be a much better idea if you posted this in a thread of its own, since it really has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH THE TOPIC.

Also, I highly recommend that you read the POST in my signature. You've been a member for over a year... so please get a clue, it ain't rocket science.

I've not tried it but all I've read on the net says you cannot copy the charts at all without them getting scrambled. That's how they keep them from getting pirated.
