nk-parts

This particular model of flash drive listed by nk-parts on ebay is one commonly sold by fraudulent wholesalers in the far east.

They are low capacity drives programmed to fake capacities – they look ok in the properties window but once the real capacity (usually under 4GB) is exceeded data becomes lost or corrupted. The seller may not know this.

We advise everyone who buys flash memory items to test them with the free program h2testw irrespective of where they were purchased – otherwise you run the risk of data loss and corruption.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have purchased a false capacity device on ebay.
