    Depend on the maker, but 64gb can be anything from 58gb-64gb. Problem with sd2vita adapter is they seem to work well the first time, but when you take the microSD out, they break so randomly. I just believe you have more chance of adapter gone bad destroy the microSD than a normal microSD card defect if you can copy so much into it.

    buy from www.mymemory.co.uk legit cards at the lowest price you can get in the UK... only downside is 2 days (free) delivery...

    256gb is like £23...

    do not buy SD cards off ebay, especially from china...

    It does not depand that much, if your 64 GB says 64 GB there is something fischy. 64.000.000.000.000 / 1024 /1024 / 1024 / 1024 should give a good reference of what to expect.

    sd2vita adapter that damage sd card could indeed happen but in the case of this issue I'm almost certain that it is a non legit SD card.

    My experience with sd2vita is non of the above. No issue with legit cards and no damage at all. I always take them out to add stuff.

    The best way to check if a card is legit or fake is to try to fill it up and see if it holds the contents. I recently got a 256gb card and I had a doubt that it was fake so I started copying 8gb folders again and again and after 2 tries it started deleting the older ones to make space for the new ones, turned out it was a 16gb chinese card that shows 256gb size programmatically. A tool to do the same is H2testw, it copies random data to card and reads back after filling it up telling you how much was lost and what was retained.

    I would suggest buying memory cards from AliExpress, I have bought two 128gb cards for about $28 CAD each, write speed is 90MB/s and cards are legit, using one of them in vita now, had no problem, also bought sd2vita from there, everything works flawlessly. Can take a bit longer to arrive but saves you a lot of money and headache.

    28 Canadian dollars (21 USD) is not in my opinion, you get 128 gigs class 10 UHS-3 original cards, you can use it for years and it won't die on you, buy same from best buy it'll cost you $50+ plus taxes.

    Can you tell me where I can find it for 18 to 20? I bet that has low writing speeds (23MB/s). That's the case with most of the cards out there

    when you buy it from official stores with excellent after sales services, it is not like ebay at all
