Re: Cards should only ever be written to by one device

Anyway whatever the cause of the damaged cards, it is important for every photographer to ensure that read-write (format/write/delete/rename/cut) operations to a memory card are only carried out on the same device always. In this regard, for maximum safety, even sharing memory cards between two cameras of the same make and model is not advisable.

Thanks very much for this information. That is definitely of help, as that wasn't something that I was aware of when it comes to cards. I was always under the impression that you could change devices, but you should do a low level format each time you did that.Maybe that's what's caused these two cards to fail over time - having them used by more than one device.
