Problems with SanDisk Extreme III SD Cards


Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

I just purchased alot of 8Gb San Disk Extreme III SD memory cards for my M8 and Dlux3/4 cams.

1) in the D-Lux 2 they can not be formated it says that we inserted the wrong card

2)Afrter formated in the M8 they are not read through the card reader in any computer.


I thought these were the recommeded cards. Any reason why this might be happening???

Hi Did you buy them from a reputable dealer?

they may be counterfeit


You can check with Sandisk

SanDisk | Consumer Products Landing


the cards should have a batch # on them.

I had some problems with cards I bought, ... which I "thought" were made by Sandisk, perfect packaging .... but they were counterfeit.

SanDisk confirmed they were fake.


sorry for my "worst case scenario" ..

Your 8GB cards will be SDHC so you'll need an SDHC card reader (iirc many Sandisk Extreme III SDHC cards have a SDHC card reader packaged with them).


From memory, the D-Lux2 won't recognise cards larger than 2GB and not SDHC cards.
