Sandisk Ultra II CompactFlash Memory Cards

Sandisk Ultra and Extreme CF More Like This Catch whatever life throws at you with SanDisk Ultra® II memory cards--rugged, high-performance cards with the speed and reliability you need to capture any moment, under any conditions. With fast read transfer speeds of up to 15MB/second[1], today's photographers and videographers are always ready for the next shot and the next adventure. CompactFlash cards with capacities greater than 2GB require FAT32 file system support. Insure your camera or device supports FAT32 before purchasing those capacities.

CompactFlash Cards are designed specifically for mass storage. They include an intelligent controller providing these key features: flash media control, a PC Card ATA (IDE) interface, and a sophisticated defect and error management system. This system is analogous to those in magnetic disk drives, completely transparent to host devices, and consumes no user data space. CompactFlash Cards are 100% compatible with consumer electronics, operating systems, utilities, and application programs supporting IDE disk drives.
