Hoodman SxS adapter and SDHC cards

I know this item has been discussed before, but would like to get to know about recent experiences. I purchased 2 Hoodman SxS adapters a few months ago, with 3 Sandisk Extreme 32GB SDHC cards. However, each of the three cards in combination with each of the two adapters gives a media error after some time of filming (Restore Media). Does anyone currently have the same experience or better experiences with other have brands SDHC cards in combination with the hoodman adapter?

Are you running the latest firmware on the camera? It does make a big difference and is highly recommended.

hello...

Also, you must use class 6 or class 10 rated cards.....my EX3 has the new firm ware update, and it likes class 6 cards, but I like using class 10. I have had real good luck with both Transcend (class 6) and with Patriot LX (class 10) series cards.

I have some 16 and 32 GB Hoodman cards and adapters, which I use in my EX3 with the most recent firmware update. No problems at all, even with extended overcranking.
