    Last night I noticed that something inside my Lexar SD Card rattles when it is gently shaken. It works, reading/writing as before, but I contacted Lexar an they are going to replace it. So today when I am reorganizing my cards, I noticed that 2 of my other cards also rattle. Not as much and only when in one direction but they still rattle.

    Does anyone else's cards do this and has anybody ever had any problems come from this?

    Does it still rattle if you hold the lock switch in place when you shake it?

    Yeah. When you look at the card with the lock switch on the left and the connections at the top, it only rattles if moved left to right, or horizontally.
