Found 9th May 2010
In Tesco today I spotted a new offer on SD cards.
4GB class 4 card for £5.
Make was Maxell MAXimum Ultra High Speed Class 4 SDHC.
Look for Dark blue card pack with plastic card box holder.

Also had the 1 GB PNY SD cards for £1 that were mentioned a month ago here:

brilliant price for a 4gb card but how can maxell claim this is "ultra high speed" when its class 4?!

Plenty of stock of both cards in my local store so they must be around in other places.

Admittedly Class 4 is "not that fast" nowadays but most people are not that bothered by the speed and it's good enough for many applications.

The 1gb sd cards have been posted for 2 days now too.:thumbsup:

I bought the Maxell 4Gb one on Friday from Tesco for £5. Put it in my DSLR, Formatted it and took about 10 shots. Then an error message popped up on the screen... 'This card is not correctly formatted. Please Format'! I took it out of the camera and tried to read it on my computer. Nothing! All of the shots I had taken were lost! I had to reformat the card to remove anything that 'might' have been left on there.

I'll be taking the card back today! I refuse to trust it any further. I 'may' just have picked a dud one but I'm not willing to risk it. I shan't be asking for a replacement.

there is some software on the panasonic site that seems to format these cards very well just google panasonic sd card formatter

Try this ... works for … Try this ... works for me...http://panasonic.jp/support/global/cs/sd/download/index.html

Thanks mikbak but it's gone back now. Even if I still had it, I don't expect to have to download a specific formatter to be able to use a memory card! I'll stick with a usable brand such as Integral, SanDisk etc from now on. I wouldn't trust this brand of memory card ever again.
