Handling Precautions for CF Cards

  • CF cards are high-precision electronic devices. Do not bend them, apply force to them, or subject them to shocks or vibration.
  • Do not attempt to disassemble or alter a CF card.
  • Moving a CF card rapidly between temperature extremes will cause condensation to form in the card and lead to a malfunction. To avoid condensation, place the CF card in a sealed plastic bag before moving it into a different temperature zone and allow it to adjust slowly to the new temperature. If condensation forms on the CF card, store it at room temperature until the water droplets have evaporated naturally.
  • Do not use or store CF cards in the following types of locations.
    - Locations subject to dust or sand
    - Locations subject to high humidity and high temperatures
