Seller codyhannum_2390 has listed a number of used 16GB and 32GB Sandisk USB flash drives on ebay USA. These sales look very dodgy to us – the start price in this seller’s auctions is very low and the seller says that they are only used in the sense that the packaging has been opened. This rings alarm bells with us. We suspect these are counterfeit items. If so they will be fake capacity items that destroy data after a while.

We advise everyone to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

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