Default 64gb microsd from ebay

in case you come across this at ebay:

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/161266321...#ht_151wt_1299

chap is selling an unbranded 64gb card for $23.00. seller has 100% positve feedback. friend of mine ordered it and it arrived fine. however, he tried it out on his note 2 and:
- card had a hard time retaining files. folders he created (with items) would come up as having zero contents
- occassional error when pasting files. frequent crashes

do avoid as you might end up paying for a dud.

cheers

pop the card into a card reader and see if you can copy 40Gb of data to it.

I suspect it is a 32Gb card that is being disguised as a 64Gb card.

This kind of fraud is common on ebay; your friend should file a complaint to get this jerk off the store with his faked feedback.
No stupid giant pics here! Just two lines of text!

yeah, he's filed a complaint via paypal and hopefully he gets his money back. i had a peak at the card itself, popped it into a card reader and it was showing up as 64gb. had 62gb available according to the card properties. tried pasting some stuff on it but an error message came up after i tried popping in a hd movie file roughly 4gb in size.
