I personally would not trust data that I valued on one of these cards.  I
have not had it happen to me, but I have heard of several people that have
lost pictures/vids on their camera card (although some have recovered them).
I'd use a USB thumb drive or an external USB drive.

My Vostro laptop has a flash card slot that takes Secure Digital, SDIO, 
MMC, Memory Stick [Pro], xD- Picture Card, Hi Speed SD and Hi Density 
SD. If I want to use it for quickie backups eg of current work, what's 
my best bet?
