1.0 out of 5 stars Fake 16GB memory stick pro dua from Amazon directly, July 15, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sony 16 GB Memory Stick PRO Duo Flash Memory Card MSMT16G - Bulk Package (Personal Computers)
I'm aparently also a victim of the fake cards. Ordered the 16GB Sony memory stick pro duo directly from Amazon. Received it (unaware of fake cards going around), formatted it in my PSP without problems. Then tried to load data to the card via my card reader. Card reader didn't recognize the card. Card reader was old so purchased a new one from Best Buy. Recognized the card but transfers were incredibly slow and data got corrupted. Checked with manufacturer of reader and they indicated they only tested up to 4GB. Bought yet another reader with guaranteed support for all speeds and capacities. Same problem. Checked online and found out about the fake cards. I already threw out the packaging believing the card readers to have been the problem. Amazon was kind enough to still ship me another card. Will wait and see if it is a genuine one. I would never have expected Amazon to be selling fake items...
