How to test an SD card?

I just got a 1 GB Patriot SD for 9 bucks just coz my old laptop has a reader and now I need smth like Memtest 86+ to run a test on it. Can you guys recommend a good prog?

so no such software?? :sad:

I think that running a test like memtest (that runs for hours) is not a good idea on flash memory cards, because these have a limited number of read/write cycles and running such a test could damage the chip.

I don’t know if it is an useful test, but you can give a try to HDTune (free and portable software) or to Flash Memory Toolkit (too bad not free).

Thanks Geno. I’ll give it a shot :slight_smile:
