Sony Upgrades Kingston DataTraveler DTI/2GB To 64GB – Scams And Fraudsters!

leave a comment »

Would Sony upgrade Kingston’s DataTraveler 2GB DTI/2GB to an amazing 64GB? They are competitors in the usb flash drive market. Why would Sony give Kingston a helping hand and make a 2GB usb flash drive walk on water? To demonstrate they have more knowledge and expertise? FlashChipTutor doesn’t think so. It is just more fake flash spin from counterfeiters who continue to attack both brand names to make their fake flash profits.

Resellers looking to make a fast dollar order from these wholesale internet sites in the Orient. For $15 US can a counterfeit. Most are resold on eBay. “Upgrading” is a polite word used in the orient for digitally altering a usb flash drive to lie about it’s true capacity to the operating system.

Important Reading:

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.

Sony did not exactly upgrade this usb flash drive. It is also the lime model and that would be only 2GB true capacity if it actually has the right flash drive chip inside. Anyone who used this drive will suffer data loss once they exceed 2GB.
