SanDisk is definitely a slightly weird company. This is the card manufacturer AND the device manufacturer.
I’m trying to stay with the same manufacturer and use a premium product and they do not make it easy!
Maybe their manufacturing goofed up and shipped them all class 2 card when they were supposed to be class 4. Maybe it’ similar to last month when they got e200 v1 players from the actual manufacturer and thought they had v2 until they started shipping them out to customers.
What happened with the amazon thing is that the photo on the page did not have ANY class logo on it and the description listed Class 4.
I don’t know if you remember all the hoopla about SanDisk flash drives, the Cruzer series, with “U3”. It was supposed to be this platform where you could stick your flash drive into any computer, at university or at work, and get your old familiar desktop to come up with all it’s presets and a certain amount of custom apps. They were encouraging other software developers to write apps for it too. Except they never told you how to get that magic desktop thing to happen…and essentially all they stuff they packaged on the device was fairly useless and just took up memory. Most users just stripped if off and used it as a normal flash drive.
I guess I’m going to have to make a decision to try and use a class 2 card and just see what happens when it starts to get filled up with video—or look for another manufactuer…other than Kingston.
