The supposedly 128GB Sony USB flash drives listed on ebay by hotlips-ems-mybuying are notorious fakes and anyone who buys one will find it corrupts their files. Sony do not sell flash drives of this capacity and never made anything that looks like this.

The leather and steel type flash drive pictured (whether sold as Sony or not) always turns out to be fake capacity and corrupts files – other than low capacity (usually 2GB ones) that are sometimes given away as promotional gifts.

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.
