    I bought an SD card last month and yesterday I noticed it is cracking down the middle. It's bent too. I have NOT been rough on this thing. If anything, I'm super careful. I'm just shocked. I've never had an SD card break before, let alone without any provocation. I'm taking it back. It's a 4gig so it's not cheap. Anyone??

    No. I'd take it back too, though.

    I thought they were tougher than that! Mine have been, anyway. And yes, I've abused them.

    I thought so too! I've used them a lot, never had one break like that.

    Wow, that's odd and unfortunate. What brand was it?
