The supposedly 32GB flash drive in this ebay listing from 5ganjuebucuo may have the Sony name on it but it has absolutely nothing to do with Sony and has a capacity very much smaller than the advertised 32GB. This fake capacity and counterfeit USB flash drive.

The flash drive was manufactured by fraudsters in China who program USB flash drives with a small capacity (usually no more than 4GB) to display a false capacity. Once the real capacity is full files are lost and corrupted because there is nowhere for them to go.

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.
