A card with so much data still worries me and I've been using flash
cards for a few years now I have also lost a great deal of info too,
what I like to do is use something like 360 to 1gig in the field, I
suppose its come from using Minidisk at 74 mins, if you loose 74 mins of
recording it isn't so bad, I lost nearly 3 hours worth of what I call
valuable information on a 1 gig Microdrive, you are also told  that
these are very durable!
I like the convenience of the shorter capacity, it makes downloading too
a cinch, its better to monitor an hour of recording as opposed to say, 4

The one thing worth noting about the Pretech cards are their
construction. They are made of a very durable material, titanium, I
believe. The website said they were a vendor to the military and had to
be built to stand the rigors of combat. Now if they can work on that
