Expect Bad SD cards?
May 19, 2013

I just got a brand new SD card for my OMD. I have 1 16 GB card and it worked fine, but a backup is required. The new card had the same specs (16 GB SDHC SanDisk (10)). The only difference is the one says Ultra the other says Extreme (for HD video) right on the card otherwise specs say the same.

The new card has given numerous errors from card not found to Card error. I reformatted on both the computer and the camera and no difference.  Is the OMD not compatible with some cards or is this a bad card? Should I take it back or send it to SanDisk. It almost doesn't seem worth it to send it in.

No errors at all when using the Extreme card with same specs on it.
