3.0 out of 5 stars Great Class 2 card, but make sure you have an SDHC reader., June 2, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Please note that this is a Class 2 card (Class 6 is the current "top of the line"). Class 2 transfers two mega-thingies per second rather than the six mega-thingies per second for Class 6 cards.

This transfer rate is fine for most devices, but takes 3 times as long to copy files back and forth from your computer.

Please also note that older card readers are not able to handle SDHC (HC stands for "High Capacity"). Some card readers are good for only 1 GB, some go up to 2 GB or 4 GB, but only the latest generations are capable of 8 GB.

Lastly, if you are using Windows XP, you may need to either add Service Pack 3 or add a patch before the high capacity card can be recognized by your system.

I recommend adding the patch rather than SP3. Some things haven't been working quite right since I installed the latest service pack from Microsoft - you may not wish to take that chance...

My XP does not recognize my San Disk 8 GB SD HC card. Could I ask you which patch for XP you recommend? I read I need to install the SP3 first, but your warning worried me...

if your computer/device is SDHC compliant then it will read card. All new computers/devices will read an SDHC. Also the new top class for SDHC is class 10. it writes at 30mbs if your device is capable.

I bought the 2GB SD memory from Amazon. I tested two different 2GB chips at the same speed. 7.1GB write and 10.1GB read. If you are rating this memory, it is not Class 2 as stated in your review. Possibly the speed has changed in the four years since your review. Also Panasonic states my camera will not read SDHC chips. It does read these chips.

Actually, Magoo, the newer Class 10 is considered the 'top o the line'. It will transfer date at a supposedly 10X rate at more expense, also. You are correct that XP users need the SP3 installed, or the patch. I recommend the patch first as it's easier with the patch and makes your 'puter a bit faster for data transfer. I had to uninstall some XP's SP3 to keep the computer accepting some software. Not all updates are good.
