We think that ebay seller kainosdesigns made the mistake of buying the USB flash drives in this ebay listing from a fraudulent supplier and that they will turn out to have a fake capacity – a fake capacity flash drive corrupts files.

Sandisk USB flash drives in ebay auctions from wavesofmybrain1

leave a comment »

As Sandisk do not make this flash drive in either the 128GB capacity advertised in this ebay listing from wavesofmybrain1 or indeed in the 64GB capacity shown in another listing we conclude that seller wavesofmybrain1 made the mistake of buying from one of the fraudulent wholesale outlets supplying fake capacity counterfeits.

Anyone who buys a counterfeit USB flash drive will discover that it corrupts files due to the fact that the real capacity of the drive is never anywhere near the advertised capacity and once the real capacity has been filled files become lost or corrupted.

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.

if 256GB DT310 flash drives are genuine blue_elleinad could make a loss

If the 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drives in ebay auctions from blue_elleinad are genuine then the seller risks making a big loss by auctioning them on ebay. Buyers can check whether or not a Kingston flash drive is genuine quite easily – here are the steps:

  1. Look at the back of the pack – is there a serial number?
  2. If there is no serial number (there should be a label showing this) then it is sure to be a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files – but the presence of a serial number does not, in itself, gaurantee it is genuine.

  3. Look at the USB connector – is there engraving on it giving details about the flash drive?
  4. If there is no engraving you can be sure it is a counterfeit that will trash your files – but again, the presence of engraving does not in itself gaurantee it is genuine.

  5. If both a serial number and engraving are present try verifying the serial number with Kingston.
  6. If Kingston cannot verify the serial number then you have a fake capacity counterfeit and your data will become lost or corrupted after a while.

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.
