I was informed by a photo journalist that the use of Compact flash cards should be no larger than 512 mb due to the loss of photos, if the card is corrupted. My questions are:
1. How often do the Compact flash II cards become corrupted?
2. What is the best retrival equipment to use on corrupted compact flash II cards?

My concern is the use of my D2H 8 frames a second. Taking some boxing photos last night showed how fast a 512 card can fill up at this capture rate. Spending a lot of time during the bouts, deleting the "not wanted" files/photos, takes away from getting "that shot". I was thinking of getting either a one, two, or larger gb card.
Your thoughts please.
