I been using my 512mb Viking CF for about three months.

Somewhere on another board, I heard comments that the Viking CF card can deterioate, meaning that when the end-users have reformatted the card for a certain amount of time, the card will eventually lose some of the captured images. Hence, the card had a good rebate on Amazon during the time I ordered the media.

So I was concerned and since then, I do not reformat my card until it reaches near the 500mb space.
Any comments on this?

Have used the Viking 512 card for about a year, format each time I use the camera and never had a problem. Works just as well as my Lexars.
