it seems to be doubling each increase in class. I wonder if that's how SDHC media are being classified (320mb for class10?), in theory that is. What do you think?

After hearing complaints that a faster card ran slower I know I'd see what my device supports.

The docs (it's for a camera) just say to use a "good quality" SDHC card but give no info on speeds of same.

And if we review the above I think it's time to reveal the make, model of that device.

The question of what the class is, is done.
