I’ve recently  found a misplaced 2G XD Olympus card. The card refused to co-operate both in my Fuji F20 or in various usb card readers.  In truth I was about to throw it away when I realised (a) it might still have some photographs on it and secondly when I checked the camera invoice I paid £37 for the card! Returning same to Olympus, they kindly rescued some of the potentially lost photos and replaced with a brand new card! It did take a month or so, so not the fastest service. Still credit where it’s due, they have reimbursed what was an out of warranty product. Still this is the third incident I’ve come across with XD cards failing amongst my close friends I only know of one SD card incident. Hardly a full analysis I know but it does worry me a bit! Comments welcome.
