> How often do flash cards fail?

I've had 9 digital cameras over the last 3 1/2 years that have used both
Compact Flash and Smartmedia cards. I have owned probably 15-20 cards in
total. I've taken 30,000-40,000 pictures and I have never had a problem
with a memory card, except for the IBM Microdrive which I returned
because it corrupted pictures (used in a Canon Pro90.)
