This USB flash drive listed on ebay by pocketmoneymotors is fake capacity and corrupts files. It is not made by Sony and does not have a capacity of 128GB. The seller may not realise it is fake.

Sony do not sell flash drives above 16GB capacity and the Vaio name is used for laptops not for flash drives. This fake has been programmed to display a false capacity to the operating system and once the real capacity is exceeded files become lost and corrupt.

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.
