Just tested the SanDisk 16GB Ultra card (SDSDRH-016G-A11) with firmware 1.20

The EX1 issued a "Media Error" after first few seconds and refused to record. Complete failure with firmware 1.20 Only formats to 54 minutes. But will not record.

This media has the exact same Mfg part number as the Ultra II did which worked flawlessly. I called SanDisk and they insisted that they did not change the card at all internally and that is why they kept the same part number as the Ultra II. They are wrong. Don't buy the card.

John, thanks for heads-up.

Out of curiosity: which make & version of ExpressCard adapters did you test the Ultra cards?

Sorry Piotr. I usually include that with every post. I am still using the Kensington adapters for all my cards. Some feel that those are the issue. I am not so sure, but it should be noted each time someone tests another card.
Again, in this case we are not talking about a "media restore" error. This is a "Media error" which means media "failure". You can't "restore" it and keep recording.

I have tested the Patriot LX 32GB SDHC Class 10 card (model PSF32GSDHC10) on my PMW EX1 with Kensington adapter and firmware 1.20

Newegg.com - Patriot LX 32GB Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) Flash Card Model PSF32GSDHC10. With the $10 rebate my final cost will be $75. Very inexpensive.

After three times shooting for 112 minutes the card has issued no errors. I even tried to trip an error by pressing record before the green ready light came on. So far so good. Will update if problems occur.
