I had to pull the Trandscend 8 GB card in and out about four times before the cam recognized it. I tried to insert another card with IOC-9750 adapter into slot B while slot A was recording. Error message Slot A restore Media. This adapter may work better with the Sandisk cards. I do not have any to test still waiting on my (4) 32gb Sandisk SDHC cards to arrive.

Ditto Steve I'm sticking with the Kensington too.

Hmmm...

With Sandisk Extreme III, the only issue I had with IOC was that when you switched the EX1 from camera to media player mode, you'd have to pull the IOC adapter out, then reinsert it back in - because *sometimes* the cam would not see it otherwise.

Cards that will work with both: nanoFlash and EX (SxS alternative)

Sandisk Ultra II 15Mb/s seems to be working best as SxS alternative - but:
I would like to buy cards (about 20 to 30) that work with both:
nanoFlash and EX (with Kensington-adapter)

For nanoFlash
http://convergent-design.com/
recommend
Transcend 32GB Compact Flash Card (133X Speed)
http://ec.transcendusa.com/product/I...mID=TS32GCF133

They have not tested any other cards with it.
Will the Transcend 32GB Compact Flash Card (133X Speed) be o.k. as SxS replacement using with a kensington adapter? Convergent say they are the cheapest cards and "have sufficient performance for data-rates up to 100 Mbps (Long-GOP or I-Frame)."

Is there anybody else who wants to buy nanoFlash and is facing the same problem: What cards to buy for BOTH?

Thomas...
The Kensington uses SDHC cards. nanoFlash uses CF cards. Two different beasts.

Rats, I'm now cursed because I can't stop hearing 'Dem Bones' rattling around in my brain. The SD's connected to the... Compact Flash; the Compact Flash is connected to the... PCI Bus; and so on.

You can not use compact flash cards with the Kensington adapter. We are using the SDHC cards. I have tried several compact flash adapters with the Ex1 None have worked so far and the cards stick to far out of the cam with the compact flash adapters.

These cards are so cheap compared to the SXS just buy two sets SDHC and Compact flash and call it a day.

SDHC cards are so cheap, they're practically disposable. If you're used to archiving projects on a hard drive, it's cheaper and easier to store and archive on SDHC cards.

I'm I missing something in the math?

1.5 TB hard drive is $190
Two DL-DVD (16GB) is a little over $4
How is 16GB SDHC cost per GB cheaper than either?
Now if you're comparing the cost of SDHC compared to HDCAM tape maybe that's competitive.

What I meant was that they are cheap enough to be used for archiving, not that they're cheaper than a hard drive. . That's what I'm doing in my business; and, my customers are happy with that solution. Each customer buys their own archival media. Given the choice, most of my customers opt for SDHC over a hard drive or SxS card.
In the context of this thread, my point is that worrying about using the same flash media on nanoflash and a Kensington type card reader is rather a waste of time.

Gotta love the way the internet is so argumentative.
