SanDisk outs SD WORM cards for forensics

SanDisk on Wednesday began shipping a new SD memory card for forensic applications. The SanDisk SD WORM is only available in a 1GB capacity, and can only be written once but read many times for tamper-proof archiving that might be essential for evidence in a court case. The card is said to be capable of safely storing files for up to 100 years.

The cards can be read by any SD reader but written to only by SD WORM-compatible interfaces. SanDisk is working with camera makers to make the host devices, but hasn't revealed who these partners are. Prices of the cards depend on the quantity ordered and they are not available to the general public.

The card is now shipping to police departments in Japan.
