CF card that will give me long video

My current CF card, SanDisk Ultra II 4GB, only gives me about five seconds of video before the buffer is full and the camera quits recording because it cannot write to the CF fast enough.  What is a good card that will cure this problem for me?

I just tried my old Sandisk Ultra II 1GB in my 7D and it work just fine.

I normally us Sandisk Extreme an they also work just fine.

Manual page 149:

When shooting movies, use a large-capacity card having a read/write speed of at least 8MB/sec

That's 8 MegaBytes/sec not 8 megabits. That would be 64 megabits/sec

Something's wrong with your card.
