As fake memory cards have now proliferated throughout the marketplace, it is important to be able to spot a fake. This page includes methods to spot fakes, and examples of fake cards.

Why should you care?

* Inferior quality card - you're not getting what you paid for
* No warranty - when the card fails, you're out of luck
* Fake cards sometimes have invalid partition sizes, making it likely to fail
* It will drive costs of genuine cards up

Spotting a fake
Unfortunately there is no software which will test the card, and ensure that it's genuine. You must manually scrutinise your card, (both visually and by testing it's performance), to get some idea of it's genuinity.

Presentation quality and differences:

Example of fake 1GB Sandisk SD Card

This particular card was also missing a notch, making it quite easy to spot:

Example of fake 2GB Sandisk CF Card

Note the faded red print on the back, and the "TM" next to "CF" at the top right side on the fake:

Note there is no serial on the bottom of the fake (serial blurred on the real one):

Note the fake box has no hologram:

Other example of Sandisk 2GB CF Card; Note the poor print and alignment of label:

Note the poor quality workmanship on edge, print quality and alignment of text:

The SanDisk card manual was different to the real thing as well (note that the manual on the right hand is from a Sandisk Ultra II, wheras the manual on the left is for a 'flash memory card'):

Fake Sony Pro Duo 2GB. Note that the fake card has poor quality printing and does not have the same various extrusions and intrusions as the genuine card. With the number of lips and dips on the genuine card it isn't difficult to spot the fake.

i bought a 1GB MS duo from lelong for RM116. It works great on my cybershot, but throws out access errors when used with an adapter on my clie pda. but good enoughlar can store up 900MB+ for so cheap. my reasoning is by the time this memory card goes kaput even if it's a few months time, i still cover my costs. eg.

today: ori 1GB = RM200, fake 1GB = RM100
by the time the fake one spoils: ori 2GB = RM100...

hahahaha...
