The flash drives in this ebay listing from caishenbaoyou2010 are fake capacity counterfeits that will corrupt files. There is no such thing as a genuine Sony Vaio flash drive – all are fakes manufactured in China by fraudsters who program flash drives with a small real capacity (usually 4GB at most) to display higher capacities when plugged into the computer. The net result is that once the real capacity is full everything starts to be corrupted and the drive often ceases to operate at all.

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.
