The mechanical construction (plastic housing) of Sandisk Extreme cards is a bit different from other SD-cards.

+ the SD-card slot of the OM-D is rather tight because it's weather sealed.

I had problems with Sandisk cards, abrasion of the edges of the card, abrasion of the gold plated contacts, smearing of this abrasion and so on.

I don't use Sandisk cards on my OM-D anymore for that reason.

Other manufacturers cards like Transcend etc. gave me no trouble.
