SD Memory Card scratch

by HKPK_2005 / October 16, 2005 1:47 PM PDT

I have a Sandisk 512 Mb. SD card, and I've used it for over 3 months now on my Kodak Easyshare DX4330 Digital camera. When I observe the card, I see scratches on the gold plates of the card. The card still works, but I'm worried that it might not last longer. A few years ago, I bought my first SD memory card, and I experienced the same problem, scratches. Can anyone help me???

I use both sd and smartmedia. Let's see, i think i have 1 32mb sd and 1 32mb smartmedia along with an additional 128mb smartmedia card. I jam the cards into the memory card reader rather harshly, and theres even some residue from food on one of them, and it works fine. If you're worried, maybe make a backup of your pics or get a new card. 512MB will cost what, ~$50?

There will come the time when those points will have no metal and there will not be any contact. Is that whet companies rely on so we keep replacing them?

They will last a l.o.n.g time even with the scratches.
