5.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE !, 11 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: SanDisk SDSDX-016G-X46 Extreme SDHC UHS-I Class 10 Memory Card up to 45 MB/s read - 16 GB (Personal Computers)
I bought one of these 16GB Sandisk HD Video 30MB/s UHS-I cards for my Nikon D7000. And guess what? It worked fine in a Sandisk USB SD card reader but the camera didn't recognise it at all. So I returned it to Amazon, their returns service being exemplary as ever, and received a new card. Guess what? That didn't work in the D7000 either. Just before I was about to return the second card and give up I got an email from Nikon saying there was a firmware upgrade for my camera. I installed it and now the card works fine.

I suspect the problem area is that the card is UHS-I and the D7000 had variable compatibility with such cards as they are quite rare at the moment. I'm guessing that other reviewers here who've bought this card and had no issues with the D7000 have received the 20MB/s HD Video card which I believe is not UHS-I.

So if you have a Nikon D7000 make sure you have the most up to date firmware (Version 1.03) or you are likely to have issues with this card.

Exactly the same thing happened to me when i installed a 8Gb version of the very same card.

You must ensure those gold plated contacts on the card are perfectly clean and free of any particles of dust.

I inserted the card several times into my Gf1 camera and it worked then tried it in my new GF2 and it would not accept it saying reinsert the card.

This i did four times until i cleaned the gold plated connectors.

Lo and behold it worked.

You see if your camera can use the sd card it should work.

I also purchased 2 of these cards from amazon for my Nikon D7000, the camera was not reading them at all. Thanks to this review, I downloaded the new version 1.03 directly from the Nikon site and they are working perfectly. Thankyou for bringing this to our attention.

I have also had exactly the same problem with this same card. The camera initially didn't even see the card. It then did and was working fine for a while and then out of the blue a card erorr occurs. I couldn't even switch the camera off and the only way I could get around it was to remove the card from slot 1 and re insert. Thankfully the images were still on the card and it carried on working ok.
I returned the card to Amazon and they replaced it straight away. The 2nd card was just as bad and I arranged for Amazon to provide me with a refund and I ordered two 8Gb instead. It was only after Googling the problem that I discovered the problem with the fact that the camera needed a firmware update for these cards to work on the D7000. Sorry Amazon for the hassle but they have been great about it. I now also need an SDHC card reader to be able to download the file for the upgrade to be able to re insert it into the camera. Hassle.

Thanks for this - my problems solved now. I updated the firmware in my Pentax, which then wouldn't read the card, but my computer could. Fortunately I had transferred the photos, so none lost (as I thought). Card reformatted, appears to be working just fine now. Time will tell.
