  • I bought this so my kids could use the internet on the Wii and play games with it
  • The problem we had right away was that it was not able to read it
  • I love my Windows 7 computer but this card did not
  • I know the card was not locked but it just would not work on my Windows 7 machine
  • I thought well this should be a class 6 card and should hold all the videos and pictures that I want it to

      I have had two different brands of 32 GB memory cards. One was great but one was not and this review is for the SD card that was not very good. You would think that any memory card with 32 GB would be fantastic but I can assure you this was not the case with the SanDisk Extreme III - Flash memory card – 32 GB. The first think I have to say is that this card is black with red righting but it does not stand out. It is a very bland looking card. This means it is easy to lose unlike some of its more colorful counter parts. That is not a great thing but that is not what made me upset with the SanDisk Extreme III - Flash memory card – 32 GB. I bought this so my kids could use the internet on the Wii and play games with it. For some reason this card is not a very good card to use in a WII. The problem we had right away was that it was not able to read it. IF you took it out and back in you could

      get it to recognize this memory card but it was very annoying. For almost $200 this card is a real rip off.

      I am not person who would call something a rip off lightly. I just can think of so many reasons that this card is not worth the money. I had to buy a different SD card to use with the Wii and was not upset at first. I figured that I could use the SanDisk Extreme III - Flash memory card – 32 GB on my computer. I have a lot of videos that are large that are stuck on my old laptop that I would like to move to the new laptop. I figured the compatibility problem was just with the Wii. Sadly it was also with one of my computers as well. I had no trouble with using the card in my Windows Vista machine. I put it in and it recognized it and I was able to save the videos I wanted to move on to the card. Stupid me then deleted the videos off the old computer.

      I then went to move the videos on to the new computer with ...


      • the SanDisk Extreme III - Flash memory card – 32 GB. There was about 30 GB of videos on the card by this time. I stick it in my new computer that runs Windows 7 and nothing happens. Nothing at all. I love my Windows 7 computer but this card did not. I stuck it in and out and it would not read it. I got it to read it somehow one time and it could not remove the videos from the card. I know the card was not locked but it just would not work on my Windows 7 machine. I had to take it back to the Windows Vista machine and look at that it was able to put the videos on the card back on to that computer. What a waste of my time. I was so upset about this because I have no reason to keep this card around now except to use with the old computer. Still what good is it to me if I can not move things to my new computer. I suggest that no one buys the SanDisk Extreme III - Flash memory card – 32 GB
        until they fix the comparability issues.

        I then decide to try this in my Cannon camera. I thought well this should be a class 6 card and should hold all the videos and pictures that I want it to. I was so angry when the camera was not reading the 32 GB card as a class 6 card but as a class 2 card! So that means I can not even use the full 32 GB of the card in my camera either and for a memory card that was almost $200 it is now effectively working as one that I would have paid half price for. OK so now I am pretty upset. The Wii can’t read it as a 32 GB card, Windows 7 can’t recognize isn’t, and in my camera it is not reading half the memory or being treated like a class 6 card.

        If you are using it for the Wii it is useless, if you want it for a computer it had better not be one with Windows 7, and if you are getting this for a camera you are better off going with a 16 GB card or two of them.
