    SD Card question

    I heard if you flash a lot of your stuff on SD CArds, they could wear out fast, well, if i watch a south park episode on The Wii, would or could it wear out my SD card? reading a mem card for about 20 minutes straight sounds pretty bad..

    I bought an OCZ SD card, and they have a lifetime warranty, so I don't care.

    Individual flash memory cells have a limited lifespan, but that lifespan is measured in the hundreds of thousands or even millions of erase/write cycles, with the controllers themselves utilizing algorithms designed to balance wear across the entire card's cells.

    Watching a video from the flash memory isn't erasing or writing, so you are pretty much safe. Additionally, nearly all flash cards come with a lifetime warranty, so if your card does stop working you'll be entitled to a replacement.

    However, as with any media, you should always secure a backup of your data to avoid loss due to unforeseen circumstances.
