Basically that. My SD Card broke.

The tab that slides down to "Lock" the card snapped off and the card is locked. I was able to retrive the images currently on there, but my camera will not allow me to make any new shots.

Luckily I have no shotting plans in the next couple of days.

bad luck, but I had seen at Amazon some deals about SanDisk Extreme 16 GB SDHC Class 10, a few weeks ago and you can check maybe get one, like me...right now I have 6 cards, 3 Sony (8 and 16 SDHC, 16 Pro Duo), and 2 Sandisk Extreme Pro 16 and 32, and other more, it's always in my bag, for emergency,that I use for my phone and my psp :)

I must admit, I tend to use numerous 4 or 8 Gb cards rather than a big 16 or 32 Gb card for such a reason. SD cards are just nowhere near as durable as CF. Having said which, my oldest SD card is still going strong, albeit held together by superglue in places!

I thought I had a few extra as well, but could not find any.

Oh well, found a few on Ebay for $6.00.

sucks

I don't buy SD cards on ebay anymore. All the ones I've ever gotten have been fake. No reason to since they are so cheap from legitimate vendors now.
That sucks. I have purchased quite a few and had no issue. What do you mean by fake?

Ebay is really good about buyer complaints and you should be able to get a refund fairly easy.

They say it's a 16GB, it's really a 2GB. Ebay is good about getting my money back. It's not worth the hassle when you can get them so cheap in other places. I stocked up on the 8GB samsungs for $2. Even ebay isn't that cheap.

Too each their own. I use both Ebay and Amazon and rarely have issues.

The card that broke was a 16GB class 6. This time I went with a 8GB class 10.

davect01, what's the brand and model of the SD card that broke? I'd like to know that so I can avoid it.
