Any way of telling the difference between the original and fake Sandisk MSPD physically (packaging, appearance, design, etc)?

Any ideas on the Kingston CF cards? I might about to get some 4GB.

Also, is any of the Lowyatt shop more reputable? Is Cycom considered reputable?

I've determined that original Sandisk is distributed by Photo Marketing (M) Sdn. Bhd. and they have their company name and address sticker on each packaging. Also, there is a Sandisk hologram which depicts a dice with a Sandisk logo if seen directly, and four faces (1, 2, 3 and 4) of a dice when seen from 4 different angles. Reminds me of the original hologram sticker of Disneyland products.

can u tell more about the micro Sd or call as trans Flash


Added on July 1, 2007, 8:04 pmhey guess what M2 aslo got fake one la!


Added on July 1, 2007, 8:09 pmi think u guys must take a look at this :-

COMMON counterfeit brands found

SanDisk - Cruzer Mini (SDCZ2) or Cruzer Micro (SDCZ4).
- Most fake SanDisk display the capacity as 'G' instead of 'GB' on the item and packaging.
FAKE SanDisk Cruzer USB Flash Drives Exposed
FAKE SanDisk Extreme Compact Flash Cards Exposed
FAKE SanDisk Ultra Compact Flash Cards Exposed
FAKE SanDisk Ultra Secure Digital Cards Exposed

Sony - Micro Vault.
- Counterfeit Sony Micro Vault does not bundle with software such as 'Virtual Expander'.
- Most fake Sony display the capacity as 'G' instead of 'GB' on the item and packaging.
- All Sony Vaio USB Flash drives available on eBay are counterfeit as 'Vaio' refers to Sony proprietary branding reserve for Sony notebook series only.
- All Sony 8GB USB Flash drives on eBay are also counterfeit.
FAKE Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo MagicGate Cards Exposed
FAKE Sony Micro Vault USB Flash Drives (Exposing soon!!!)

Kingston - Data Traveller I & II.
- Counterfeit Kingston does not bundle with software such as 'Migo'.
- A well-known counterfeit Kingston Data Traveller with an identical serial number appearing across all 4GB (white body with black handle) and 8GB (white body with orange handle) versions at the back of its retail packaging, SN: TCO7773-00156959, LK: A510M1D-5380562U. On the side of the item it may have some small printing showing 'DTI', 'KF08 1 9 0 5 5V' and '5262-014.AOOLF CHINA'.
- All Kingston 8GB USB Flash drives on eBay are counterfeit.

Imation - Swivel & Mini.
- Counterfeit Imation does not bundle with software such as 'Imation Flash Manager'.

BenQ, Dane-Elec, Hyundai, Laser, LG, Toshiba, Transcend, TwinMOS.

No Name or Unpopular Brand.
A very high percentage of the counterfeit flash memories are using Hyperstone and iCreate memory controllers, instead of the original manufacturer's own memory controller!

and one more!!
The fake will deceive you by displaying the 'false/oversize' capacity when you connect it to your PC, however they will NOT be able to store the data to the stated capacity.
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 back 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 50 to 180 seconds writing to. Usually the writing time is twice as long as the reading time.
The fake will take an excessively long time (1 to 7 hours) only 'pretending' writing but the data was not actually being written. Hence when you try to read it back, it will claim data as being CORRUPT. Many have reported that many strange files/folders eg. 00000.000 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, UK, USA and European's eBay.
The counterfeit model cannot be located or matched with any genuine models on the manufacturer's web site.
Counterfeit 'USB Flash Drive / Compact Flash / Secure Digital / Memory Stick' are flooding the eBay market at very low Buy-It-Now (too good to be true) price to make you think is an absolute BARGAIN.

i bought one MSPD card last year. it comes in a pack together with the MS adapter. the photoshop claimed, it was an original one.
had been using it for the past few months on my K750i. so far no problem but after going thru this tread, now, i suspect my MSPD was a fake one!
any idea about how much was the actual space on original 1GB MSPD capacity?

thank you.
