Sub-Standard Stock? BE AFRAID, BE VERY AFRAID..
on 11 March 2009
I'm bitter after purchasing this, and annoyed at myself for being attracted by the very low price. Although the card arrived quickly, no instructions were included. Due to this, I forgot to format the card to my new Olympus camera, prior to 2 weeks travelling in Sri Lanka. 320 photos in of various amazing parts of the country, the card refused to soldier, giving the message 'clean card and replace.' I did so very carefully - there was clearly no dirt on it, but it's dead; it won't read on a computer either. I'm now preparing to recover the photos using expensive software less format the card and potentially lose the pictures. Maybe I've just been unlucky, (I've got 4 other (Fuji) XD cards that I've not had a problem with) but I will be investigating to see if I've bought cheap stock destined for cheap markets, or worse, counterfeit goods. What do I want? Assurance that I've bought genuine, high quality goods, and I would have appreciated a reminder to format the card too.
