I think the SD cards are more fragile then CF cards. I might have the  
1 bad card out of 1000 good ones. Yours are from the good 999.  I  
have two Sandisk SD cards that work and one that doesn't. I just wish  
Leica used CF. I have maybe 10 CF cards for my Canons and Nikons and  
never had a bad one. They are either Sandisk or Lexar. In the last  
few years I've only bought Sandisk until my dealer ran out and I had  
to buy the Transend SD.
