Re: Who lost images caused by damaged memory card

When it comes to media, it really is "you get what you pay for". I got a free 16GB card with my grey market EOS M. The card has no brand--it just says 16GB SD. It is significantly slower than a 30MB Sandisk but the kicker is that my computer cannot recognize the card. It shoots fine in the EOS M but when I pop it into the PC, Explorer always crashes trying to open the card. ...I'll pass on this one.

I never skimp on media card, always stick with known brands like Sandisk, Lexar, Transcend etc...

Also I always buy dual 16GB instead of 1 32GB even though the latter is cheaper. If one fails, you don't lose all your images.
