    I posted a topic a week or two ago, though it was the Canon utilities giving me a hard time, but I found otherwise. I purchased this card new from Costco about a month ago........

    [​IMG]

    .......and have had nothing but troubles with it. I took 300 pics the other night during a high school football game, and I get home to find about 75 of them are corrupt files. To top that off, I can't get this mofo to read worth a shit. I have to take it out/put it back in my card reader, open and close the utility a few times...........etc.........finally it will work. Sometimes I will get all of the pics off in one shot, sometimes it takes 3 or more times to get all the pics off.

    So...........anyone had this happen? Corrupt card? I am sure Costco would give me an exchange. If others have had the same problem with this card, I am going to swap for another Lexar. My 512MB Lexar backup is how I know its a card problem.......it works like a champ. My Lexar 1GB card worked flawlessly every time also.

    Anyone?

    We have a 2GB Ultra II and no problems. Sounds like you should exchange it.

    No problems with my 1 gig or 2 gig. I just picked up another 2 gig in the 37 dollar deal. I'd just exchange it.

    lexar ewwww


    only lost images came on a lexar
     
  10. hehe yeah I had to get at least 1 lexar car to see what all the talk is about. :big grin:

    That 4 gig card rarely leaves the camera, If I shoot jpg fine only I can do like 3 or 4 small shoots without changing cards. 999 is stuck in the little box that displays the amount of shots remaining for a long time. :mamoru:

    My last shoot I was using jpg fine + raw and if I recall correctly there were 762 shots on the card and I still had like 60 - 63 shots remaining. :hsd:

    Plug it into any 4th or 5th gen ipod, and straight into the camera, press the button on the front of the ipod adapter, and it transfers all the photos over to the ipod picture album, then when you get back to your computer, you have to have "disk use" enabled on your ipod, and you can transfer them back, It's not the fastest thing in the world, but if you get fucked out in nowhere without anywehre to drop your photars, it comes in handy as hell.

    Corey: Good luck, I went to pullman twice in the past 4 years, and both for the same thing (applecup) and needless to say the only thing to do in that town is get really drunk and watch football, I actually never want to go back :o

    Fyi: I picked up the 8gb from a friend for $200 bucks :eek4:
