We think that italjanec bought these 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 USB flash drives from one of the many fraudulent wholesalers supplying counterfeits. The seller may have no idea they are likely to be fakes that corrupt users’ files. Genuine DT150 drives have individual serial numbers that can be verified with Kingston. We don’t think Kingston will verify these.

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 your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.
