brutus404 It seems ebay seller brutus404 is another ebayer who took a trip to fake flash land without doing the research necessary to know what is fake and what is real. This drive is one of the most obvious fakes on ebay and other sites on the Internet. Why? because Kingston do not make this model in capacities above 16GB and these drives are colour coded – the green one is 2GB. Chinese fraudsters program the control chips to report a fake capacity to the operating system and fool users. The poor souls who end up with these often don’t have a clue until all their files get corrupted once they exceed the real capacity. If you bought one you should test it immediately with h2testw – you are at grave risk of losing your files!

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