I hot swap the cards no problem you just have to wait for the led to green, it's red when writing. I just eject the card and adapter then put another one in with a new card. You do have to make sure the card is seated correctly though or you will get media not recognized error message. I just pull the adapter out and then reseat the card in the adapter and return to the camera and it works.

All the info is here in the thread but at this moment there is only one card that works and that's the Generic one from Hong Kong. I have several on order at the moment. The link is in Kevin Cates post above.

Robert, I had those HK cards shipped to me Nov 21, and I'm yet to receive them :|

Unsure if 2-week delay between the order and delivery is acceptable for everyone.

Will test the cards when I receive them...

Unfortunately, Kensington's availability is extremely spotty, as we seem to have scooped all the online supply as the result of this thread :)

Try Amazon's Kensington link, sometimes you get lucky. It shows in stock right now, BTW - fulfilled by Amazon itself.

Do these 3rd party cards switch seamlessly from one card to the next while recording? Just as the Sony card do?

Pull the battery.

I've only seen this exact issue with SDHC cards that were not fast enough.

It's possible that one of your Transcend SDHC cards has an issue.
I have yet to see or hear about a Kensington card create this issue.
It's possible your Kensington is bad.

This is what happened with my bad Delkin adapter. Hung in formatting then restarted camera and reinserted the card and adapter this time formated then media errors within 2-4 minutes in record. I tried all of my SD cards in my other adapter and no problems at all, All Good!

I am using the Transcend 16GB cards with 2 - SD Ultra IIs to be here soon, maybe today.

More tests today!

I just got off the phone with Delkin, great discussion btw. It seems like Delkin is really on the ball and the gentleman said that they could have new stock on the old adapters, most likely relabeled as something else, in 2-6 weeks.

He just sold me, what a great company.

they could simply make a bundle of a rebadged Sandisk 16gig ultra II card +their adapter, call it eXFilm or something like this.
I am even surprised that no chinese guy has not yet started to advertise for low cost fake SxS. Just glue a shaved SDHC in a kensington, change the sticker... et voila !
