USA seller seems to have been shopping in fake flash land

This flash drive listed by ninedragoncity is a classic fake which never has a real capacity above 4GB (and that is only usually found when sold as over 32GB) – mostly the true capacity is 2GB or less. You can’t tell by looking at drive properties as these flash drives fool the operating system.

The fact that ninedragoncity has listed this fake makes us think that this seller bought from one of the many fraudulent suppliers who sell fakes that trash users’ files. The seller may be unaware of the problem.

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.
