Heed the Warning Well,
This review is from: SanDisk 8GB SDHC Memory Card (RETAIL PACKAGE) (Accessory)
It's a fine product, and it works just fine in products that support the SDHC format. However, be ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN your product (be it a digital camera, memory card reader or--in my case--the Palm T|X PDA which for some STRANGE reason doesn't read it) reads it. Just because your device is new doesn't necessarily mean that it will recognize SDHC cards (as opposed to the older SD cards).
If your device recognizes SDHC cards, then by all means go forth and thrash. You won't find a better card for the price.

Being a newbie when it comes to these devices, I was wondering how to find out about my device's compatibility?

If it's a device that uses SD cards, there should be documentation somewhere within the product that lists whether or not it accepts SDHC cards. It's the "HC" that you're looking for (standing for High Capacity). If it's not there, it probably won't work. Sorry about the late response; don't review on Amazon very often.

Very true... and after reading the one star reviews, that was probably their issue. Also, when a SanDisc brand card does go bad, their phone support is awesome and they have a contractor who will help you restore your "missing" shots if your card fails after priceless, not to be repeated shots are recorded. There is a fee (obviously) but I felt it was reasonable and you ONLY pay if you recover your shots, and you keep the software for a year. I was very very satisfied... plus they gave me advise on how to keep the same thing from happening again... like reformatting instead of "erasing" photos. Mine were leaving behind little artifacts which eventually incapacitated the card. Oh, and my original "busted" card is good again.

Look at the original card that came with your device. If it says SDHD on it, then you know you are good to go with an SDHD Card.
