Re: Memory card failure?

I worry more about loss, theft, and the dreaded "operator error" than about some kind of spontaneous card failure. So I don't like to have more than one project on a single card. If a card fails or I screw up the loss is limited.

In the old days I did have a couple of CF cards fail -- possibly from pulling them while they were still writing, as someone noted above. And I have had two SD cards physically break -- one in the washing machine, one for no apparent reason.

I'm so cautious I don't even like to carry cards with photos in the camera or bag. Especially after a job, I take the cards out and carry them on my person or out of sight in the van -- I figure the camera or bag could be a target for theft but a card case would likely be overlooked.
