Thanks for your insights, Guy.

In my experience, I've come to realize many things are not made the way the used to be. Sometimes I wonder if a new SD card would be any more reliable than my old one.

Make sure that you buy from a proper source and have easy replacement if found to be faulty within the warranty period, or lifetime replacement for some brands.

Excellent suggestions. After reading your reply, I looked at a few SD cards. Didn't realize some have a lifetime warranty.

No need to do anything apart from an in-camera format when refreshing the card.

Do not use default Win/Mac formats, use only the proper SD Association format program

I never format a card, or delete or download photos, from anything but from the card itself. Thanks for jogging my memory about the SD Association's SD Memory Card Formatter! Great that it even comes with a manual.
