on my 5DMK3. Specifically with recording RAW. About 35% of the images are corrupted after each shoot. It's happened each time, three to be exact. I use two cards and record separately. I was recording JPEG on the Transcend 32GB Class 10 Class 10 SDHC Flash Memory. No problems at any time. I did a test with switching the cards with the CF card reading JPEG and the SDHC card reading RAW. No corruption on either card. I format both cards prior to shooting. Any ideas on what may be going on? Thanks in advance!

I had a similar issue. it turned out the Transcend card was bad.

Sent it back for a warranty exchange.  About 4 months later they finally sent me a "new" card in retail packaging as a replacement.

The replacement card also had issues.  I ran recovery software, and got back some of my issues, and someone else's vacation photos.  Apparently the "new" card they sent as a replacement, was a repackaged card that someone else had returned as defective.

I sent that one back as well.

My ultimate solution was to switch to SanDisk.  I no longer trust Transcend media with any of my images.


P.S.  If you have any private images on your card, be sure to overwrite them before sending the card back to Transcend for warranty replacement.
