Re: How to Corrupt a Memory Card?
In reply to LesGarten, 7 months ago

Saving pictures back to SD card will not corrupt it. But, playing it back on camera will.

Camera's small playback algorithm, is not good enough to handle exceptions like

1) folder structure changes - laptop OS might write hidden folders

2) file naming inconsistencies - caused by re-saving it again or hidden files from OS.

These unhandled exceptions, might cause the card to fail.
