Bought this for my Canon Ixus 40 Camera after I had run out of space on a recent holiday with my 2gb card (I shoot a lot of video on my camera).
I was concerned that 1) The card may not work with the camera, although I thought it probably would and 2) It would not be fast enough to shoot continuous video- cheaper cards I have had before have stopped the video after about 20 seconds because they would not write fast enough. The camera itself will only allow video in 1GB blocks, but the card is fast enough I believe to continue the whole 4GB if it could.
Well, I am pleased to say that there are no worries on either count and the thing works perfectly. I can now shoot nearly 2000 pics or about 35 mins of top quality video on this one card.
The card is something of an anomaly in that, as other reviewers say, it should not technically exist. Bizarrely it is not even featured in Transcend's mini catalogue which comes in the packaging which looks to include every other card they do.
Anyway, don't worry about that because it does exist and it works like a dream and is unbelieveable value at £6.99 delivered.
If you have one of the older Canon Ixus from the 40 up and want more storage but your camera cannot take the newer SDHC cards, I think it is a pretty safe bet that this will work with your camera and it is a no brainer purchase.

Beware that this card is not compatable with many SD devices. We have tried it in our Pentax SLR, TOMTOM, Sandisk cardreader, Palm PDA and it is not recognised by any of these devices. All these work fine with our current 1GB SD cards. The devices are not SDHC compatable - although it is not sold as SDHC this card may be OK if the device accepts SDHC cards. Note that the SD Association website gives the maximum capacity of standard SD cards as 2GB.

On the plus side, Discountdiscs took the card back and tested it when I contacted them. They confirmed it was not faulty and returned it at no cost - however, it is still not useable in any of our devices. Hopefully we may be able to use it in some future device.

Even though there are supposedly no standard 4GB cards that aren't SDHC, this is one exception that I am certainly glad to have discovered.

I have been using this SD card for my TomTom One XL for about 7 months now and it is has been great. I now have all the following maps on one SD card: Western Europe, UK & Ireland, USA & Canada, Eastern Europe, Australia, South Africa, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan.

When you get to your destination, you can switch maps without ever having to keep switching between cards which makes my TomTom device a truly global one. You just pick up a hire car at the airport and GO!!! The only reason I have not given it 5 stars is that sometimes when switching from one map to another, the access time can be a bit slow (up to 2 minutes) but once you are in the other map, everything is back to normal so I am not really complaining. Loads better than trying to fiddle with a paper maps.

bought one last week, works as expected. It is not the fastest card out there, it will take time saving images in continuous shooting modes, but good value for money for those who does one picture at a time. Some people may also find it useful to know that it works fine with Nikon D50.

My iPaq H2200, Oregon ATC3K, Panasonic SDR-H40 and Toshiba Satelite Lap Top, use this card with no problems, the iPac is old, the Tosh is brand new. the cameras have no problems; the ATC3K is an action cam, it's used the card in very harsh conditions. The card read/write performace is good enough for me, (older, smaller capacity cards I own, are not any faster). I cannot fault an SD card that cost me less than £10 and isn't even listed by it's own manufacturer. I researched the card generics and it shouldn't work but by golly it does a great job.

A real curate's egg, this one. Neither my HP laptop nor my Panasonic Lumix digicam (both 2 years old) recognise the card at all. My 3 year old Palm TX, though, does after a fashion. It will accept document files including PDFs, which is useful, but although it seems to load MP3 music files it won't allow them to be opened and played. This is really what I wanted it for, as 4Gb of music would have been quite handy. I might be able to fashion it into a couple of nifty toothpicks, though. Overall, too risky to buy for older kit.

STOP PRESS
I have managed to get the music to play, which means I can carry a decent stack of music with a host of documents, most of which have embedded photos. I might even be able to get it to work with my camera one day but, in the meantime, I am happy to upgrade the rating to 3 stars. Unfortunately I can't actually amend the star symbols above.

FURTHER STOP PRESS
I bought my wife a Canon Ixus camera recently and this card works perfectly in it. Upgrade to 4 stars!
