Hi Nate,
The card has checked out fine, in fact it has had another dozen cycles since then. I can't comment about the rest of the cards as only that particular card was written to at the time, but it has performed flawlessly since. I used an application to check it's validity at the time and it reported no faults.
Has anyone else used the cards in such hot condition, the 40 or so degrees was in the shade, in the sun it was significantly warmer.
I have spoken to photographers since that and they report a slow down in the transfer speed when the card is hot, but no corruption.
I also used the software in the camera to determine if there was a fault in the recording but everything was OK.
I believe that the high temperature of the card had an effect on it's ability to write off at speed. We all know that high temperatures effect CPU's and drive speeds in our computers, I'm not surprised the same thing can happen to solid state.
