Feedback from ebay buyers indicate that this and other models of flash drive sold by Hong Kong based seller isamshop788 are fake capacity flash drives. Such drives corrupt users files once the true capacity (in this case it seems to be 2GB) is exceeded. Looking at the drive properties does not give you the true capacity of these drives. They are programmed to fool the operating system and only testing will reveal whether the capacity advertised by a seller is the truth or not.

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.
