Hi,
As the topic title says.
For example,
I have a 2 GB USB drive, I want when somebody connects it and sees how big is it(like Right-clicking then Properties for example), it will say it is 6 GB.
Is that possible?
I heard eBay scammers do it

But I tell you, I'm no scammer

When I read the title of the thread, I was sure you were trying to pull one on somebody.

I guess it was a bad assumption.

Sorry, but I can't answer your question. Just wanted to get that out in the air.

of course this can be done. you just have to reprogramm the controller chip with your professional flash tools.

sry. this is not possible software wise and thus not for the average user.

You could try using the Alcor Au6980 LLF Tool. It may or may not work with your particular memory card

The software is in Chinese and you'll have to pull out your googling skillz to find it.

Well you don't need to offer a how-to, but on what level do you enter that?
write an own driver?
Service for this special device?
how should you know how this could be done?
Something that can edit partition tables, like some hard drive reformatter disks, but only heavily modified and having you know what you're doing.

Get the boot sector of the same size that you want it to say, and use one of the many tools to apply it to the one you want to change?
