The flash drives in this ebay listing from tanjinyu2010 may be marked Sony but they have nothing to do with Sony and do not really have a capacity of 64GB – though that is what will be reported when you plug one into a computer. This is because these fake capacity flash drives are programmed to show a false capacity. Anyone who bought one of these will find it corrupts their files once the real capacity has been filled. The item location is as fake as the flash drive – the seller and the flash drives are in China not the USA.

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.
