Warning about memory sticks on ebay inluding micro sd cards sold on ebay
There is a heck of a lot of sellers on ebay at the minute selling FAKE memory cards, these have been re-flashed in the factory to make it look like they have more space than they actually have!!! be warned, these can fook up very easily if you try to put more data on than its actually meant to have. If you have not backed up your data this will mean you will lose it forever. I have proof attached to these posts.
if you look on ebay the sellers are trying to get around it by saying this at the bottom of their listings (this is taken from an actual ebay listing today!!)
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND THE LISTING BEFORE YOU BUY
THEY ARE IN SEALED PACKAGES SO WE CANNOT CHECK THEM
after selling over 100 of these I have found they have fault rate of 1 in 50
if you are unlucky enough to get one of these do no worry
We replace or refund any faulty cards once they are returned
THESE ARE UPGRADED MEMORY CARDS
STORAGE SPACE WILL VARY IN EACH CARD AND CAN BE UPTO 128GB OR LESS
IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE ABOVE PLEASE DO NOT BUY
IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE LISTING PLEASE DO NOT BUY
Don't risk losing your data or being RIPPED OFF by these assholes, its all over ebay, some are even saying that their so called 128gb cards might be anything from 8gb up to 126gb. shocking really.
I bought one to prove my point, a 64gb usb stick, when I stripped it down this is what I found: you can see that the memory when the case is taken off that it says 8gb, I tried to put around 32 gb of files onto this stick and it would not allow me to do it and it crashed. here is the stick showing the 64gb on the front, something needs to be done
