"It only seems to be an issue with certain brands of cards that seem to remain popular despite people noting problems. The fact is (and I keep on saying this) there seems to be alot of people having problems with Transcend cards."

That may also be due to the ownership skew caused by more people buying the $40 Transcend 16GB class 6 cards than the $110 Sandisk Extreme III 16GB cards or cheaper Sandisk Ultra II cards.

Jonathan I feel for you. I want your project to be a success but hey man you are pushing your luck. Please just use one card at a time. No interview is so important that you cannot break after 57 minutes to change cards. Good luck I hope your problems can be resolved. SxS to SDHC is a no no i think from reading other posts here.

I asked that question before about continued recording from an SxS card to a ATP SDHC card and got this answer.

So far, I've had no problems, perhaps I shouldn't do it.

Possible. But also note that many people who have been using Transcends for a year or so report no problems. From what I've been able to see, the problems started with cards purchased from about June/July onwards.

Seems to me that if you have cards that are 6 months old you'll swear by them, newer than 6 months and you'll end up swearing at them.

well said....as the 2 16gb Transends that I got in Jan 09...work great....the one 16gb card that I got back in Oct 09...it does take 7- 9 sec to do "red to green" and I have had "media restore" several times....so I think you are right.

Agreed. The product may have changed. I also think that some of the confusion has to do with red (MLC) and green (SLC) striped products, although I myself have had some problems with both green-striped units. The odd thing is that both of my Sony EX1 "media restore" errors took place in the same video session, so I doubt it is random failure. The same session did not have trouble with a Sandisk Extreme III SDHC.
