I was wondering about what brands on memory people were using? I have always stuck to Sandisk Extreme III and have had no problems, but I have heard some horror stories and wondered what every one else uses.

I have used Sandisk Ultra II CF cards for some time now and been very happy with them. Never had a read/write fault in the 3 or 4 years I've had them. Use them for both a stereo audio recorder and for a Canon DSLR. Put thousands of hours of audio, 10,000+ pictures on each of the ones I have and never had an issue.
