Re: [OCLUG-Tech] SD card

Love when you pay for a feature that REDUCES the utility of what you bought.. Wasted memory to stop you from using the rest of the card if t does not like what you are doing - Wonderful...

the actual capacity of the SD card was noticeably

   From wikipedia:
All SD cards incorporate a digital rights management
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_rights_management>  (DRM) scheme.
Roughly 10% of the storage capacity of an SD card is not available to
the user, but is used by the on-card processor to verify the identity of
an application program
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Application_program>  that it will then
allow to read protected content. The card prohibits other accesses, such
as users trying to make copies of protected files.
