How they make memory cards

Pretty cool to see the process behind our digital film. Music is lame though, I recommend muting the audio and listening to something else.

->> You guys making the comments about it being Asia or not are missing the point.

I thought it was a very interesting video and I'm happy to see the quality care that goes into memory cards. Even though this is a Lexar Commercial, I'm sure Sandisk put the same care in its memory cards.

I'd like to see a similar video on how they make light sensitive film might be pretty interesting but a very dark video.I guess we would be looking at machines since they can't expose the film.

.......They did say half way through that they are shipped to China for assembly.
