I bought this card just over 2 months ago on clearance at Radio Shack and do not have the receipt any longer so I cannot take it back. They said there should be a warranty of at least a year by manufacturer. I do not have the original package it came in either. Just the little plastic case and of course the card. Is there anything you can do for me to get this replaced? My kid had over 90 pictures on it and the card is kaput. I tried several card readers including taking the card to Radio shack and letting them use thier card reader. I am pretty sure I paid around 13 dollars for it.
When this happened to me with a card I brought at Jessops I took in my bank statement [Jessops clearly marked against deduction to prove that I had purchased the card there. They came up trumps and replaced the £29 card with no problems.

If you paid for item on Credit or Debit card , see if you can obtain payment information from them. date you bought it . Best I can advise
Hopefully, you have warranty and receipt. Usually, Store will accept a return. Otherwise Mfg warranty usually one year. sometimes they will arrange an exchange at the store. No receipt? problem. Bought with credit card? should be as good as receipt. Credit card co may help with the issue if you get resistance.
You can try contacting the manufacturer if you by happen to have the receipt and get your money back...I save all that stuff now in a folder cause quality just doesn't exist on anything anymore like it did 30 years ago. Take it back where you got it...even if you don't have a receipt, if you make enough ruckus, maybe you can get it exchanged. It's messed up about the data though...hopefully you had a second copy on your computer (backup?)
Windows Vista was a very resource hungry operating system. I recommend a PC to run at least 2 Gigabytes of RAM on top of at least a 256 Megabyte or 512 Megabyte Graphics Card to be able to use it effectively. I have tested Windows 7 Beta and they have done ALOT when it comes to better performance. I ran Windows Vista Home Premium on my laptop with 2 GB of RAM and a 256 MB Graphics card and it was kinda slow, I am now running Windows 7 Ultimate Beta and it is TONS faster. Vista was pretty much built to be slow, no questions about it.
The correct chain is thru the company you bought it from as your first point of contact, but if you get no joy there there is nothing to stop you from taking it directly to the manufacurer. Just bear in mind a few points.
*Just about all warranties are return to base - so you have to take the effort and cost to get it there thus your origional point of sale (POS) is the best place to start and sometimes they will bear the cost of the return.
*You will need your proof of purchase by way of a receipt. Credit card/bank records do not constitute a proof of purchase but will help the company you bought it off provide you with a duplicate. If you payed cash and can not remember the date all bets are off - be nice to the staff that you are talking to because they are under no obligation to provide you with a duplicate (esp cash and no date).
*Some manufacturers will acknowledge batch/serial numbers in lew of proof of purchase becuse these will demonstrate that the unit was manufactured within the warranty period.
*Finaly this is not in reference to your current situation but a verry handy FYI. When you purchase an item or especialy a system you will often find that the supplier (POS) is only offering a 12 month warranty or charge you extra for a 24 month warranty. This is as we aussies say is money for jam. This is because the manufacturers often have significantly longer warranties for components they supply.
Lets look at a system:
Intel CPU - Lifetime warranty
Kingmax RAM - lifetime warranty
Seagate HDD - 5 year warranty
Mitsubishi CDRW, DVDRW, Floppy - 2 year warranty
Most Power Supplies - 2 year warranty
Admitedly most board and adaptors are 12 months but not all.
So you come in with a failed unit, they point at their receipt with the 12 month waranty notice (actualy illegal) sell you a new one (at profit) send the failed unit off for credit or replacement and put it on the floor for sale (more profit).
Final Final Note: No warranty covers any kind of physical damage, power surges, water ingres or a unit being used for a purpose other than for which it was designed and opening or modifying a unit will also void warranty.
SAME HERE Ram installed about 2 years ago I think 2x4gb ddr3 sodimms Failing after a year started as blue screens and not recognized short time after. Without receipt = no warranty Got it as a gift = no warranty Oem = no warranty Purchase with gift card and misplace receipt = no warranty House burn down with all paperwork = no warranty Not good at keeping records =- no warranty I have been in contact with PNY and can you tell they have told me without the receipt they can do nothing for me? COMPLETE WAISTE of the word warranty. and yes there support people get smart with you and quote other companies warranties and state see they do they same thing! WAY TO STAND OUT! Why even have a lifetime warranty, just call it a "prove it" warranty?
