Fake Memory Testing – InspectorTech’s Advice
Posted by inspectortech on February 22, 2010
Fake flash memory chips are a serious problem. It seems that over 1,000,000 flash memory chips are reprogrammed each month according to TechChip’s recent article: How Can You Spot Fake Flash Memory Chips? What Is the Key Factor That Determines If MP3 MP4 Players, USB Flash Drives Or Memory Cards Are Fake Capacity?
So how do you test your flash memory chips to find out if they are the advertised size?
There are many programmes on the market, but there is only one that seems to provide the most accurate and informative results, H2testw. It might take a long time to run as it must test the “advertised capacity” not just the real size of the flash memory chip. If you have a large capacity to test, consider running over night or on the weekend when you don’t need your computer. Our technical teams use this programme and prefer it.
If you are planning on trying to restore your fake usb flash drive, mp player or memory card it is important that you first find out what the real size of the flash memory chip is. It is also important to use this software tool after you have repaired, to make sure that it is now safe to use. The program H2testw can give you greater confidence that you succeeded in your restoration of true capacity.
