This has happened to me twice and I am getting a bit concerned. In three years of shooting DSLRs it has not happened to me until I got my latest card.

When using my new Transcend 2gig SD card I have had two image files end up corrupt and can't rescue them. So far they have not been important images, but I don't want to wait until I lose important ones to ask the question.

Is this the card or the camera (K10D)? If it is the card I am going to have to switch back to the more expensive cards.
I'll have to agree with Jonas on this one. I had troubles with a Kingston 2 gb card that was driving me crazy, I had never had problems before. I thought it might be the card (it was new) but the card played perfectly in my MP3 player. I changed readers, and bingo! problem solved.

I've also had a couple of files that Lightroom refused to import because they were "corrupt." I have not yet taken the time to figure out if the corrupt files were the last pictures I took on the card but I think it's possible that they were. I don't see the problem routinely. Last time I saw it, I'm pretty sure I had filled up the card and had to change cards in the middle of the shoot. But after reading this thread I think I'll pay more attention next time it happens.
