Transcend cards not working in X-T4

I just received an X-T4 as a gift and tried using a couple of new Transcend V90 cards with it. 

https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1431179-REG

The first one is completely dead. The second recorded stills, but when I tried to import, 18 out of 40 images failed to import into Lightroom. When I looked at them in the finder, they don’t have any data in the files  

 

I’ve head great success with these cards in my Panasonic LUMIX bodies.
 

What cards are you all using with success?

I use with my X-T4 two Sony Tough SF-G64T, V90 UHS-II 300 MB/s Read/Write, 64 MB SD cards, set in camera settings for "backup" so both JPG (fine) and RAW files are saved to both cards, it is a backup on second card. Sony has also a 128GB card, SF-G128T. I formatted both my SD cards in camera (formatted them with the cards in their slots in the camera, with the cameras  own function Format) before I used them.
Here is Fujifilm compatibility list for SD cards to use with X-T4:
https://fujifilm-x.com/global/support/compatibility/cameras/x-t4/
I see no reason why Your Transcend 64GB 700S UHS-II SDXC SD card should not work, maybe reformat the card(s) when it sit in the camera slot(s).

One thing I did not know before on SD cards, I read it some days ago for the Sony Tough cards:

SD Scan Utility
Over time all SD card memory wears out and the card stops recording data reliably. Sony's SD Scan Utility regularly and automatically scans your SD memory cards and lets you know before they reach their limits.

Check here for compatible cards.  You can ONLY use these cards with the XT-4:

https://fujifilm-x.com/en-us/support/compatibility/cameras/x-t4/


Notice that on Sony G-series SD cards it is two slight different specs: non T (non Tough) and T (Tough).
Few difference between them I have found out is:

1) Durability:
SF-G (non T):
Shockproof, Temperature Extremes, Waterproof, X-Ray Proof

SF-GT (T=Tought):
Shockproof, Temperature Extremes, Waterproof, X-Ray Proof
Dustproof, Magnet-Proof, Static Proof, UV Light Resistant

That is one reason why the Tough SD card is little more expensive, I use SF-64GT but it is also available SF-64G (without T).

2) Write speed:

On non T it is 30 MB/s write speed (but still 300 MB/s read speed), on the T cards it is both read and write speed 300 MB/s.

It might be some other minor differences like built-in Write-Protect Switch is not there on the T SD cards.
It is also 5 year warranty on the Sony T SD cards (note sure how long warranty on the non T SD cards).

Did you format the cards in camera? If the cards work in the Panasonic they should work in the Fuji.

You really shouldn't be getting these types of problem with any modern SD card.

I did put both cards in the Fuji to format. 1 failed, the other formatted but failed to record all the images I took.

B&H authorized a return. So I'll look at either cards recommended by Fuji

Just wanted to let You know that the Sony SF-G...T (can be 32, 64 or 128GB) is compatible with Fujifilm X-T4 camera.
I just got that confirmed with Fujifilm Nordic support when I asked for clarification on the "Tough" (= ...T) SD cards from Sony.
I have two Sony SF-G64T SD cards for use in XT-4.

To to summarize, these Sony SD cards are compatible with X-T4:
a) According to Fujifilm SD cards compatibility list for XT-4 on their homepage:
SF-G32
SF-G64
SF-G128

b) According to Fujifilm support:
SF-G32T
SF-G64T
SF-G128T

As I wrote in an earlier post that these are the main differences between Sony G-series non T and T SD cards:
 

1) Durability:
SF-G (non T):
Shockproof, Temperature Extremes, Waterproof, X-Ray Proof

SF-GT (T=Tought):
Shockproof, Temperature Extremes, Waterproof, X-Ray Proof
Dustproof, Magnet-Proof, Static Proof, UV Light Resistant

That is one reason why the Tough SD card is little more expensive.
 

2) Write speed:
On non T it is 30 MB/s write speed (but still 300 MB/s read speed), on the T cards it is both read and write speed 300 MB/s.

It is some other minor differences like built-in Write-Protect Switch is not there on the T SD cards.
It is also 5 year warranty on the Sony T SD cards (not sure how long warranty on the non T SD cards).

I just try to give facts, I do not say the Sony SF-G...T cards are good or anything.
Just want to say they are compatible with X-T4 camera, so that is crystal clear just in case someone (like me) hovered a bit in obscurity if the Sony Tough cards really was compatible with XT-4.
 The full specs on the Sony G-series Tough SD cards is here for anyone interested:

Those are the cards that Fuji says will work, not the only ones that will.

Any card that is compatible with the SD card spec should work, but buying from that list means you're buying known-good cards.

Exactly the point though.  You should follow their recommendations.
