Lexar 8GB Update

Was shooting yesterday with the Lexar 8GB SSD cards and got the dreaded media error, needs to be restored message several times. Did not lose any media but just the fact that it would stop recording made the cards useless. I have 4 of them and I did tests on all 4 after that, it was consistently making errors. I switched to SanDisk SDHC cards then Sony Pro-Duos and no problems. This after a week of no problems. :(

What's the latest word on the Sandisk 32GB SDHC cards? I have a shoot in 5 weeks and I am REALLY anxious to get on the ball with these.

Jay,

Why don't you keep them? If you have two loaded card readers in the camera, you have to remove the entire card reader (with flash card) to change cards. You can only remove and change only the flash cards (with the card reader left in the slot) if you have an SxS card in one of the slots. It would be easier to have 3-4 card readers ready to go. Just a thought.

That's a good idea, actually. Thanks for the thought, John.

That's because I'm an idiot, Ronn. It's along story, but it's totally my fault. I've never been accused of being the sharpest knife in the drawer.

In addition to MicroCenter, I found another vendor that shows the Kensington Card Readers in stock.

Garrett's Smart Electronics Store in Seattle, Washington


Smart Electronics Product

I would call them first though.

Both. Tried the same cards today and 2 of them did fine but 2 did not. They seemed to have more trouble with 720p than 1080i. I could record continuously for 28 minutes (full card) with no problem. Just the start stop thing. Bottom line: Not reliable.
