lespecialiste34The model shown in the picture on the the left is only made in capacities up to 16GB. It would appear that seller lespecialiste34 has been shopping in fake flash land.

We think a quick phone call to Kingston would reveal that these flash drives are counterfeits or lower capacity Kingston drives re-programmed to display a false capacity to the operating system. Either way they certainly are not 32GB drives – testing with h2testw would reveal the true capacity.

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.
