As it says at the top of the description, many devices that use SD cards cannot use SDHC. However, at the bottom it says:

"100% compatible with all devices using SD Secure Digital cards."

This is simply not so.

Doesn't come with an adapter either.

I agree that if you are being absolutely pedantic the last statement could be read as being contradictory and a little misleading .

However as no SDHC compatible device requires an adaptor of any kind you second statement is totally irrelevant,

If of course they had said that it was compatible with microSDHC for example that would be another matter.

There are two different adapters for SD/SDHC cards, that I know of, for using them with different slots (micro-SD and CF). There may be others I don't know about.

I don't think it is overly pedantic to point out the inconsistency in the description. I have a Panasonic Lumix camera which uses SD cards but simply won't recognise SDHC, which is usually any "SD" card above 2Gb (there are a few 2Gb SDHC cards and a few 4Gb SD cards, but both are uncommon).

The camera manual does not mention this problem as SDHC cards were not yet available when the manual was printed. Many owners of slightly older cameras are caught out by this lack of information. You can see their queries in camera help forums every day. To have a product description actually containing false information is not a pedantic detail to such people.

Funnily enough I also have a Panasonic Lumix camera which uses SD cards and being a number of years old does not recognise SDHC cards. Therefore I am grateful that Play point out in the fist line of their description that there is an incompatibility issue. If everyone did the same I am sure there would be a lot less queries in camera help forums therefore I think the slight error in there last statement is relatively minor.

I still fail to see the relevance of you mentioning the extsitance of adaptors?

Adaptors exist to connect all sorts of things to each other, the absence of an adaptor that the supplier does not state is present seems totally pointless. For example adaptors exist to connect the mains charger on an iPAD to work with a standard US power socket would the fact that this is not supplied with UK iPAD's worth commenting on in a UK form?
