16GB Sandisk Extreme Pro 90/MB/s UDMA CF
on 24 November 2013
Usually use Lexar cards, but as Sandisk are running a cashback offer and everyone and their dog rave about the extreme pro range i ordered both a 16GB CF and 16GB SDHC extreme pro card.
Used both (formatted in camera first) for a football match, saving RAW to the CF and small jpeg to the SDHC as always and all seemed fine...until i tried to download images!
To cut a long story short, the SDHC was fine, but the CF card was not.
Corrupted i think is the word used a lot! Tried every way to d/l images, from camera via usb cable, usb3 card reader but could only download 9 RAW files which i was only able to retrieve by formatting the card again then using the rescue software, btw this took two and a half hours!!!! for nine images!!!!!
I will be sending the card back for a replacement, no point moaning that sandisk are rubbish, sure this was a one off.
Bad luck i lost 300+ RAW images from the match, but lucky i save to separate card if only to jpeg.
Goes to show even the best (allegedly)can sometimes go wrong!
