There is no such thing as a genuine Sony flash drive – they are fake capacity flash drives manufactured by fraudsters in China. The supposedly 32GB flash drive pictured in this ebay listing from frgrr has nowhere near the advertised capacity and as a result of the fake capacity it corrupts files after a while. The seller has been suspended by ebay so anyone who bought one of these will find it has vanished from their won list.

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.
