1.0 out of 5 stars Did not work in my HD Canon camcorder, February 22, 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Transcend 32 GB Class 10 SDHC Flash Memory Card (TS32GSDHC10E) (Personal Computers)
I bought this card in preparation for an upcoming vacation. I'm glad I tested it prior to leaving as it did not work in my camera, or at leas not as advertised. The camera simply displayed a message stating that I couldn't record in FXP mode (HD) with the current SD card (even though the technical details for the product state "Perfect for vast amounts of HD video and high-resolution images". In fact I had to bump the resolution down 2 levels before the camcorder would allow me to record. According to the documentation that came with my camcorder, it is capable of writing HD content to an SD card with a Class 4 speed rating. So, while this card is advertised as a Class 10, I don't believe it actually is. In addition to the problems using this card in my camcorder, the card also could not be read by the card reader in my PC with Windows 7. I had to plug it into the card reader on my printer before my computer would recognize it.

I returned the Transcend SD card and purchased a slightly more expensive 32GB Kensington SD card, and everything works as it should, in my camcorder, and in my PC.

You may have received a bad card.
My friend used this card to record 3D AND HD video with his camcorder.
He said it worked flawlessly.

I agree; i bought a 32G Kensington Class 10 & it didn't work as expected (I had a suspicion that it was fake) then i bought 32G Transcend CL 10 & it worked just perfectly fine.

My transcend 32 gb "class 10" caused the same error message as was reported in this review. The camera does not give me this message with other, presumably slower cards, so something must be wrong with a non-trivial number of these cards.

I wish that I had read this review before getting three of these cards to take on a trip. My Transcend class 6 card has always worked. This card gave me the same trouble as described above. My camera identifies cards by speed class. There was a dash next to the class rating for this card.
