Re: Memory card failure?

I've only had two card failures that I can remember.  I bought a cheap Onn brand card from Walmart because I needed one in a hurry to hold music for a device.  It lasted about 6 months before it stopped reading.  Since it was just music I didn't bother to try to recover it.  The other was a Kodak brand card that spent several years outside in a trail cam.
For things that matter I use SanDisk or Lexar (before they were sold). I also date them and after a few years they go out of the camera rotation and into non-critical stuff.
