Ok, I've checked the receipt. I bought mine from Inforcom in Funan Centre. I remember I got that shop's info bcos I went to the X-Drive II website then and Inforcom was one of the few shops listed there. The rest were in SLS.Originally posted by EastGear
I am afraid that we do not have any resellers in Funan Centre. Though we are talking to some of the shops there, as of today, we have not passed any stocks to any shop in Funan Centre. Perhaps you may try and direct your claims to the shop where you bought the X-Drive II from.
Thanks and regards.
Direct my claims to the shop?? Hmm, in that case, I think I can forget it. This is Singapore...Anyway, how to convince those guys? You have to be a photographer and a heavy user of the X-Drive "out there" to appreciate the problem. Moreover, what's scary is that it's an intermittent problem. As hentaitic has experienced... Wow I thot mine was bad enough!!! I had to delete images since I'm only using a 256MB card and I always shoot in RAW mode on my DSLR. Sometimes, there's just no time to wait for the images to get downloaded into the X-Drive.
Well, all I can say, it's time for me to sell away the X-Drive II soon (with 20GB) Any buyers???
If anyone thinks mine is an isolated or "rare" problem, I doubt so. It is very real and my personal advice is, if you're a pro or value your images a lot, steer clear from X-Drive!!! I didn't even know it's a problem in international forums... Had I known, I'd have forked out a few hundred $$$ more for something more robust.
Just on my recent trip to Canada, I lost 1 or 2 damn good candid shot I took in RAW mode. Now the files are corrupted... But thankfully, I managed to at least convert them to small jpg format. Still, it need not be this way at all...
