How do I handle a flash memory card?

Flash memory cards are sturdy, rugged, and durable but they are not completely indestructible and an element of care must still be undertaken to protect them and the data they hold. With proper care, they should be capable of over 1 million data write/read/erase cycles and preserve written data for 100 years.

How to handle a flash memory card:

  • Never force a flash card into an electronic device. It will go in only one way and should slide into the respective slot easily.
  • Keep flash cards away from extreme ranges of temperature and humidity; keep them out of direct sunlight.
  • Keep flash cards away from electrostatic sources and magnetic fields.
  • Do not bend them or drop them.
  • Do not eject the cards or turn off any device when data is being transferred to the card.
  • Be aware of remaining battery power on hand-held devices so that data are not lost if the battery finally runs out.
