Dude, they have a lifetime warranty. Get it replaced. I've bought cheap-ass cards from AData and Dane-Elec for the last several years and none have caused me a problem. If something isn't working right and it's got a warranty, get it replaced. If nothing else, you will get a newer card and it'll probably be faster.
But yeah, you can practically find 1G cards in ******* jack boxes these days. 2G CF cards from AData are < $10. For that kind of money, any piece of equipment that EVER caused me to lose a SINGLE exposure would go straight into the trash.
