Here we have another obvious fake from another seller based in Italy – and what on earth does seller lotsunami mean by V.upgrade?? You cannot upgrade a flash drive!! You can, however, do what has been done buy this seller’s supplier. “What is that?” I hear you ask. The answer – program a small capacity drive to appear to have a much larger capacity thus causing file loss and data corruption for users.

As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

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