Hi Joan,

I bought a couple of the 'Panram' cards from PC Nextday, some time ago and had no bother with them. Did you format it before you used it?
I suppose it's possible that you have a duff card and if this proves to be the case, I'm sure they will swap it for you.......

Hi Bill - Yes I certainly formatted it.

I think I may have a duff one. Just as an exercise I backed up in SDExplorer a Kingston 512 SD card - about 60% full. I then restored it back to the PANRAM again in SDExplorer. It "hung up" after about about 25 minutes, reading 14 minutes remaining. I aborted this and looked at it on the KN7 and much to my suprise the KN7 read it as finished anyway. The Kingston SD read 389,328 and 22% used the PANRAM read 403,744 and 19% used.

I did the same test again and again it appeared to "hang up" although the KN7 read it. Not too happy about that.

Will contact pcnextday about it. Joan

I then formatted the original SD and restored the file back to that. The differance in restoring on this one was amazing - only 11 minutes total!

Back to the PANRAM again - formatted in the KN7, saved a nominal folder etc, and started restore - same thing - hung up after much longer than the 11 minutes above and I had to abort it BUT the KN7 read it OK.

Hi there - I told you I would inform you of the outcome of my purchase.

PCNextday advised me to return the card for testing. They wrote that the card would be tested by them. If the fault is confirmed a credit note will be raised on my account and refunded back to your credit card. I see my account has been credited so it seems I had a dud card - can happen with any brand. Joan

Is it better to work with two 512MB cards than a 1GB? What are the pro's and con's?

Thank you, John C.

Our Local Fry's electronics store had the 1 GB SD card for 54.00 USD on sale this week. I can't see a need for one that big. I use a bunch of 256k for my own use.
Best regards,
Bebop

I'm quite happy with a 64mb card it stores more than enough for my requirements

Hi Joan,

You are right about any make of card being 'duff'. Whilst on holiday last year I bought a 256 Panasonic SD Card from a well known large store and within 2 weeks it developed a fault. The little gold bars looked very scratched which I knew couldn't be due to heavy use as I had only used it twice to store some floppies. I took it back to our local shop and fortunately for me, I spoke with a young man who knew about the use of these cards with our keyboards as he owned a KN7. He confirmed the card was faulty and changed it for another new card there and then. The new card has been no trouble at all. (Hope I'm no speaking too soon as they say). Considering the faulty card was not bought at the local store I was really impressed with their Customer Service.

Best wishes to you and yours.

Audrey

I endorse an earlier comment along the lines 'do we really need a Gigabyte SD card'?
I'm using a 256MB card , have all the styles I can find plus midi's, and I have only used 111MB.
I do not have any MP3's onboard and that could make a difference. But even so I would think that 512MB would be the largest one would ever need.
Though I do recall comments of 10 or more years ago that 64MB on a PC would last forever!
Keith
