Notice of Replacement program for some SD memory cards of SF-M series, SF-M series TOUGH specification, and SF-G series TOUGH specification

    Thank you for your interest in Sony products.

    We have identified an issue with some SD memory cards from the SF-M series, SF-M series TOUGH specification and SF-G series TOUGH specification.

    VSC mode data issue

    When using a camera* compatible with VSC mode (Video Speed Class), recorded footage data on the card may be damaged or may have not recorded optimally.

    * Cameras compatible with VSC mode with V60/V90.

    To address this issue, we are implementing a free replacement program for affected SD memory cards.

    You can identify your card using the model number on the front of the card as indicated with a circle in red.
