Counterfeit SD card? (not)

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
So I bought this off of Amazon:
[ame="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000P1O73A"]Amazon.com: Sandisk 4GB Secure Digital SD HC Memory Card (SDSDB-4096, BULK, No Reader): Electronics[/ame]


And got this:

Does Sandisk make cards with labels like this, or is this a cheap counterfeit?

I considered that. But it also came postmarked from a private address, not an actual business address...

I'm going to try copying a 3GB+ file to it.

Im not sure if thats a fake card or not but I bought one that looked legit and it was a fake. Bought a 16GB Compact flash card and got a 1GB knockoff with Sandisk stickers on it..... It came from China. Does it register as a 4GB card?

If you actually bought it from amazon contact them... they'll refund you minimum. If its ebay then bad luck, all you can really do is file a complaint...

That sounds really weird, you bought from amazon and it came from a private address? Something is not right..
