There is no such thing as a genuine Sony Vaio flash drive – they are fake capacity counterfeits manufactured by fraudsters in China. It appears that vfhd-6730 (registered guess where?) sold a number of these in two ebay listings: item number 220628639965 and item number 220628954378. If you bought one of these – beware! This USB flash drive corrupts files.

This seller had no current listings when we last checked. The feedback we have seen so far for vfhd-6730 looks very dodgy indeed – it all seems to have come from “buyers” in China who are keeping their feedback private. This seller is one to avoid like the plague in our book!

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.
