  • Just an FYI, my serial number does not fall into this range and I can't span files (with cbrandin's 66Mbps AQ2).

    It is ok.
    No one can span files for >32Mb bitrates.
  • Strange, mine has no serial # on it. BH purchase.

    I probably does. Some of the numbers are pretty dark on mine - I had to use a magnifier and light it at an angle to be able to see it.
  • my transcend 16gb is not among these. but it does rattle if you shake it. is this normal?
  • This confirms my thoughts on the quality of Transcend cards; I do not trust them, let alone with my unbacked-up source footage.
