Suspect 32GB flash drive from ebay seller in France

leave a comment »


We are fairly certain that the flash drives on offer here from seller lecomptoirdelatlantique are not genuinely 32GB but will have been fraudulently programmed to seem as though they are. Such flash drives eventually cause loss of files and corruption of data. We think the seller bought these from one of the many wholesale outlets which supply fake capacity flash memory. Why? We think the buy it now price is probably too low for genuine ones to be sold at anything but a loss.

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.
