    Read / write speed (somewhere between 10-24Mb per second, but there is no defined class standard, producers basically make it up as there is no industry standard). Plainly a guide, for cameras the bigger the better, but for RNSE anything over 4.

    I just dumped a load of clutter onto them, need ordering and there seems to be no easy way of doing this!

    Only the Mk2 hi def screen versions manufactured from around 2010 onwards.

    Depends on what bit rate you have your music set at. I always use 320kbps and have about 50albums and nowhere near full.

    We're not suggesting using them for a Canon EOS-1D / Nikon D3s, just for music files on RNSe. Is there any benefit to paying for excessive transfer speeds the unit won't benefit from? Doubt the RNSe will see any benefit from much more than 30mbps.

    Massive difference in file reading speed between the cards I tested a few and notices massive delays when switching tracks especially on shuffle

    Good man. Seem to do the trick in our car, no real lag, but then I haven't used track shuffle.

    I finished work for Xmas on Friday night so any spare time this week will be spent squaring up the playlists. Mac is tied up doing the painful update to iTunes match, been going for 36 hours and still 300+ songs to go.

    Hoping BlueHarvest software will clear all the dross of the card!

    Have a good journey / holiday lad, and make sure you load up some banging tunes. I'm having a hankering for a bit of Zen Cuts, Ninja Tunes and Roni Size, DJ Shadow and LTJ Bukem this week so I know which playlist is priority no.1!

    Cheers Warren, bought a few of these as soon as you originally posted and they are great. I'm also a Mac user so if you have any tips in creating effective playlists on the card (from iTunes) it would really appreciated. Like yourself, I finished work on Friday so got a bit of spare time this week to mess about with the cards!

    Thanks in advance!

    Doesn't seem to be easy way really. Open finder and then on one card I've created playlist folders which are alphabetically listed.

    Then split window so half size iTunes window and half Finder window. Playlists on SD card mirror naming in iTunes. Drag contents from playlist content (select all tracks) into Finder folder.

    Once they've copied over you can accept the ordering, but all files will contain the track number ahead of the track name (e.g. 01). I go through and reorder as I like a decent flow to the playlist. Takes a while on these big cards, but only way on bespoke playlists to sort them out.

    Second card has favourite albums and I created 26 folders A-Z by artists and dumped them in the right one so not spending hours twiddling!

    Basics in place, but now need to populate. Quick it ain't, but Blueharvest removes duplicate meta files being carried over.

    Any better methods greatly appreciated!

    Thanks mate, I was hoping that there was an easier way for creating a be-spoke playlist. I will have to have a play around when I get five!
