The card which lead to this tread should be a Transcend: I'm not 100%
sure, because "Transcend" is only written on the micro-SD to SD adapter,
not on the micro-SD itself.
I don't know where my customer bought it, nor how long it took to fail
and if it initially hinted about what was going to happen.
I think it was only used in a camera.
Speaking for myself: I had a Kingston (non micro-)SD, used for music in
Bought in 2010 from CDC (a now defunct Italian reseller), it failed in
2013: the car started skipping some songs; months later it started
skipping whole albums.
I guess I could have recovered all data (since failures were not
systematic), but I had another copy, so didn't even try.
When I tried reformatting it it gave SCSI errors.
In Jan 2014, Kingston promptly replaced it and the new one has been
working fine since.
