Just wondering what would make any of the SDHC cards incompatible with the M&R setup outside of speed?

I thought SD memory was standardized.

I tried two sandisk Video HD 16Gb cards and neither one worked with the MxR.
I then picked up two sandisk Ultra II 16Gb cards and a sandisk Extreme III 8Gb card and they all worked fine with the MxR.

Does EX1's firmware version matter if your sticking with just the 16GB cards?

I think I've got 1.05

These have been tested and are cheaper but I can't vouch for the seller.

I'm testing the new Sandisk Extreme III 30 MB/s Edition 16 GB SDHC.
It supports every resolution, now I'm testing the overcranking, but it seems having the same issues like the Extreme II.
So, don't waste extra money for the Extreme III series! At this price you can buy 2-3 16 GB Extreme II (or almost one 32 GB)

So, actually, is there SDHC ready for overcranking ?

And what 32 GB SDHC works without any problem ? (just for long recording, and not overcranking).

Don't you think we can make an Excel sheet in this forum with Good/No Good/Overcranking ?

Regards,

William.

For what they cost, you can buy a bunch of 16GB cards and adapters and just keep switching them as the second one fills. Not sure what real advantage paying an arm and a leg for a 32GB card serves when so far there is no proof (AFAIK) that they are that reliable yet.

Sandisk 32GB Ultra II have been reliable for me. They always take 2 attempts to format but once formated they go forever. In many long shoot situations that I do, changing a cards is a real pain ranging from camera jiggle to putting one away and digging out another.

Problems with MxR card read and SanDisk Ultra II Class 4 16GB

Hello Everyone,

I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced any problems with the MxR and SanDisk cards. I've had the cards for a few months now, and I have now had my third major problem.

The first incident occurred while shooting on a reality television show. The card showed no problems during shooting (I never got the Restore Media message), but when I tried to import on a MacBook it was unreadable. I tried several data restoration programs, and went so far as to have the Geek Squad take a look. Unfortunately, there were no salvageable files. I contacted Sony to see if they might be able to help, but obviously because it is a third party product they were unwilling. This was a pretty big disaster and although we did not lose a lot of footage in did cost me a client.

I talked with Ross from eFilm and he deduced that most likely it was a faulty SanDisk card. This seemed plausible to me, but the part that bothered me was that I had used the card successfully for a couple of weeks before the failure.

Currently, I am in Rwanda shooting a documentary. Last week I had another card fail. This time the card did appear in the XDCAM Transfer but several clips were corrupted. They each played for a few seconds, but would always stop at the same point. Once again it seemed plausible that the card simply had a bad sector or two. Still, I was bothered because it was a card I had been using for several weeks without a problem. I immediately took this card out of my usage rotation.

Today, I have had yet another problem. The card is readable in the XDCAM transfer program, except for a 17 minute interview clip. (Unfortunately, this is a one time only interview with a convicted murderer/perpetrator of the '94 Genocide here in Rwanda). When I try to import the clip it goes to 87 percent complete and suddenly ejects the card.
Because the clip is visible and plays partially I'm hoping that it is salvageable to some extent. When I insert the card in the camera it gives me the Media Restore message but the restore fails at 22% every time.

The failures have occurred on three separate SanDisk Ultra II Class 4 16GB cards purchased at separate times at separate retailers. I have a few Sony SxS cards that I use as well and I have never had a problem with them so I'm certain the camera is fine.

I don't feel like the MxR is necessarily to blame. However, I'm beginning to feel that if it is possible to use the SD cards recommended by the makers of the MxR and still have these types of problems I don't see how the MxR can be suitable for professional use. As I said before these were cards that I've been using for some time. Each time I've purchased an SD card I have set the camera up and recorded through the entire card TWICE and transferred these clips to insure there would be no hidden problems.

At this point, I have lost all faith in the MxR's viability for professional use. Even if the problem is with the SD cards I don't see how the work flow can be usable in a professional environment. The real issue as I see it, is that these cards have failed after several dozen successful uses. If they had simply failed out of the box, upon testing, I would be more convinced of the MxR's viability.

Previously, I owned an HVX200 which I used to shoot extensively throughout Asia and Africa and I never lost a single clip. The MxR was a big factor in switching to the EX1 (not to mention the sweet resolution). At this point I'm pulling all of the MxR cards out of usage and ordering additional Sony SxS cards and having them overnighted from the US.

I'm extremely curious if anyone else had had any problems like this. I'm open to any suggestions for salvaging my latest card.
