Frequently Asked Questions

More Questions

There is a incompatibility between the card and the device. This can be due to the device not supporting the capacity of the card or the card using a newer technology than the device is able to use. In some cases, there are updates to the device that allow it to read newer or larger cards. Please check with the device manufacturer or on our website to see what cards are supported with your device.

The X rating is a measurement of the performance of the card. It is determined by dividing the write speed of the card by 150KB/s*. To put it another way, you can determine the write speed of a card by multiplying its X rating by 150KB/s. For example:

50X = 50(multiplier) x150KB/sec = 7.5 MB/sec

* 1 KB = 1,000 Bytes; 1 MB= 1 million Bytes.

No. We do not support ourflash cards as bootable devices, fixed disks or something you can run an OSfrom.

FAQ: KFC-011911-GEN-01

Many devices that use flash cards only recognise the FAT32 file system. Windows will automatically default the file system to exFAT for any removable storage device above 32GB. It will not give the option to format as FAT32. When you insert this card into your device, it will see the card as unformatted. The best practice is to format the card in the device in which you primarily use the card.
