Suspect 32GB USB flash drive from ebay seller in Malaysia

Here again we see the favourite model for re-programming to display whatever capacity fraudulent wholesalers want the customer to see. We have not yet come across one of these that had a true capacity over 2GB. We suspect these are like all the rest and that the seller bought them from a fraudulent supplier. We do not know whether the seller is aware these are likely to be fakes or is a victim of his supplier but either way we are fairly certain that these will prove to have a capacity nowhere near 32GB.

As ever 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.
