    Hi

    I bought a 32GB MicroSD card, and done a H2testw test as I was having bother with it, and these were the results:

    The media is likely to be defective.
    987.2 MByte OK (2021888 sectors)
    30.2 GByte DATA LOST (63479296 sectors)
    Details:0 KByte overwritten (0 sectors)
    0 KByte slightly changed (< 8 bit/sector, 0 sectors)
    30.2 GByte corrupted (63479296 sectors)
    0 KByte aliased memory (0 sectors)
    First error at offset: 0x000000003cc9a000
    Expected: 0x000000003cc9a000
    Found: 0x0000000000000000
    H2testw version 1.3
    Writing speed: 2.37 MByte/s
    Reading speed: 9.66 MByte/s
    H2testw v1.4

    Is it a fake? Or just really damaged?

    Cheers
    Martin

    Fake.. it's a 1GB chip pretending to be a 32GB chip. All too common these days. Let me guess, it came via Ebay and was shipped from China?

    Looks fake or defective to me. I've done the ebay/china thing once and was taken for 14 bucks. I knew it was a risk, but hey, 14 bucks for 32 gigs.

    damaged do you have a usb sd card reader ... if you do have a win system run chkdsk start> run> cmd.exe>chkdsk :/x* replace :/x with the drive letter that is mounted when you plug the reader. This will repair the damaged parts of the card, If it don't do anything then you have a fake card. Would try to get your money back .

    Mike;)
    ps if needed try putting chkdsk in -F mode that will be able if the car is locked to run it
