The 16GB Kingston flash drives sold by sylapablo seem a bit too cheap to be genuine. We think it likely that the seller bought these from a fraudulent wholesaler and that they are counterfeit. Counterfeit drives are never the capacity they appear to be. This leads to data corruption and lost files.

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.
