(3). How to tell if your USB drive is counterfeit and has fake oversize capacity?
- The fake will deceive you by displaying the 'false/oversize' capacity when you connect it to your PC, but they will NOT be able to hold the data size to the capacity as stated.
- So you MUST perform data test by writing a BIG (1GB/2GB/4GB/8GB) file to the usb drive, then READ back the same file from the usb drive to another location on your PC to compare. The READ process is the only proven way to uncover its 'REAL' capacity.
- A genuine USB flash drive will complete data transfer of a single 1GB file anywhere from 60 to 180 seconds written to and usually the write to time is twice as long as the read back time.
- The fake will take an excessively long time (1 to 2 hours) only 'pretending' writing to but the data was not actually being written. Hence when you try to read it back, it will claim data as being CORRUPT. It has also been reported that many strange files/folders will appear and you cannot delete them.
- The fake flash drives are usually shipped out from ASIA especially from China, Hong Kong, Korea or Singapore, and they are also listed on Australian, USA and European's eBay. Beware some even 'pretend' to be Australian sellers!
- The counterfeit model cannot be located or matched with any genuine models on the manufacturer's web site.
- Fake 'USB Flash Drive / Secure Digital / Memory Stick' are flooding the eBay market at very low Buy-It-Now price, mostly out of CN/HK/KR/SG, for example [$45 for 2GB<=128MB], [$75 for 4GB<=128MB/256MB] and [$100 for 8GB<=128MB/256MB] which you think is an absolute BARGAIN!

It doesn't have a brand. Item no 130117928580. (Sorry, cant link because i dont have enough posts yet.)

I tried what Steve said. It takes only about 90 seconds to copy over but I tried to open the file (an avi video) on windows media player and it said it didn't support the codecs used to compress it or something.
