16GB Sony Pro Duo memory stick on ebay

UK ebay member zai-fiz has listed a number of 16GB Sony Pro Duo memory sticks in ebay auctions at a start price of 99p with free P&P. We suspect these were purchased from one of the many fraudulent wholesalers supplying fake capacity flash memory.

The seller may be entirely unaware of the fact that there is such a thing as fake flash memory. We strongly suggest that ebay selllers test flash memory items with h2testw before offering them for sale otherwise they risk negative feedback and subsequent suspension from ebay.

As usual we strongly advise buyers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw before saving anything to it – otherwise you are at risk of file loss and corruption of data.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.

UK ebay member halmusawy has listed a lot of 16GB Sony Pro Duo memory cards on ebay. Some are on buy it now and others are listed (as above) in auctions with 99p start. We hope that halmusawy didn’t buy these from a fraudulent wholesaler in China, as many other ebayers have done. We will be interested to hear from buyers who have tested these cards.

As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.
