SD cards…

Ok. It’s official: TakeMs cards are a piece of junk. And Media Markt sold also this piece of junk.

Next time I’ll spend my money on some know brand…

The history? Canon Legria HF-200 can only recognize 1GB of a 4GB. By the way this piece of junk is Class 6 card…

My Nikon D80 can use the card with the full 4GB.

Did some tests with with fdisk and:

TakeMS:

Disk /dev/sde1: 985 MB, 985591296 bytes
122 heads, 62 sectors/track, 254 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 7564 * 512 = 3872768 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00000000

San Disk Ultra II:
Disk /dev/sde1: 3960 MB, 3960995840 bytes
122 heads, 62 sectors/track, 1022 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 7564 * 512 = 3872768 bytes

See the difference?

So my short review: for photo it might be ok. For sd card video cameras, forget it.
