This was meant as a suggestion about what to do with the a new card after you exchange the old card. If the old one's failed the only use for it is to try to recover what's on it. Once that's done, get rid of it. The suggestion was for checking out a new card because it was a new card that failed for me. Granted, it was a house brand card, but it still raised a question mark in my mind about any card. Before trusting several hundred pix that mean something and, perhaps, cannot be gotten again, to a part of the system that failed, I want to check out the new part that replaces it.
