There are a lot of software to check out your SDcard. Like HDtune ,Atto disk benchmark. I use a Adata Class 10 SDHC card,the write speed about:10MB/s and read speed about 20MB/s. It‘s feel good on the Kx.

Wow, thanks for your message. I have SD card that is 20MB/s (Class 6). I thought that this card would be the bee's knees. Thanks for the info.

A whole raft of others will tell you this. It isn't 20MB/sec. It's 6 write guaranteed (or at least as specced). The 20MB is for reading. card manufacturers always use that as it's higher and it's something people like to hear. Unfortunately, it has almost nothing to do with normal usage.

Get a class 10. Stick with name brands unless you like experimenting. Read the memory card forum here There's lots of suggestions and info.

I use a Sandisk Xtreme III (class 8? don't have my camera bag on my today to check) card for video, and it's fine for highest quality video, I can do 9 minutes clips with no problem (although after 20+ minutes the camera displays the thermometer symbol as it's overheating.

My generic class 4/6 cards can't do video unless set to 1* quality.

Just got home from work and checked, sorry it was a Class 6, so not sure why mine works and yours doesn't, what brand is it? there's usually some sites that you can check the actual write speed on to compare cards.
