finally: SD/SDHC cards without DRM

Super Talent Technology has a range of SD and SDHC cards that do not contain Content Protection for Recordable Media (CPRM), a form of DRM. The line is called ‘Super Digital’.

I am not aware of any devices that actually use the DRM on SD/SDHC cards (feel free to comment if you know of any!), but the fact that DRM is embedded in all those cards has long bothered me. SD cards are probably the most widespread example of DRM – even if nobody realizes because nothing uses it.

The cards are not hard to find, so I know what I’ll be buying from now on. Sadly, their Micro SD cards appear to be of the old-fashioned kind with CPRM. Hopefully they’ll release MicroSD and MicroSDHC cards without DRM soon…
