Kingston Disappoints not once but TWICE!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kingston Digital 16 GB Class 10 Flash Memory Card SD10G2/16GB (Personal Computers)
While I have always trusted Kingston products, my experience with their SD HC 16 GB (10)card leaves me disappointed and frustrated. I purchased three of these cards for a trip to China to use with both my Panasonic Lumix camera and a Kodak Zi8 pocket camcorder. On my trip, two of these cards became corrupted and unusable and all photos and movies were lost. Using a proprietary program, I was able to recover data from one of the cards but not the other. Furthermore, the 10 speed rating is unreliable. The video camera would turn off after less than 10 seconds of shooting most probably because the card couldn't keep up with the data input.
I'm not one to complain about product performance, but when two of three cards go bad and valuable memories are forever lost, how can one be satisfied? Replacing a defective card(s) does little to resolve the loss pictures from a trip.
Bottom line... if you want reliability, consider another manufacturer for your SD-HC card needs.

I just had my card become "damaged" while taking pics. I was wondering what software you used to recover your images? I had most of my images backed up on the computer, except for some really sweet ones of my kids that I'd taken a few days before the card went bad.

Hey, thanks again for the tip, I was able to recover all of my images!!! They are just thumbnail size though, so I've been googling how to get the full-size images...haven't found out how yet, but at least I can see now what I "lost"!
