    Hi every one ! [​IMG]

    One question, it is about the Kingston MicroSD cards, the ones with "SDC/1GB" as a serial, can they be assembled in Japan ?
    The guy who sell them tell me so but aren't they supposed to have this one: "SD-C01G" ?

    So the packaging with "SDC/1GB" written on the back can not be Japanese right ?

    Yes, the packaging with SDC/1GB on the back can be a Japanese version.

    I've got the packaging to one right here. The back of it says that exact thing. On the MicroSD card it says SD-C01G and Japan. That guy wasn't lying to you...

    I don't know what my code is, but it says JAPAN right on the card so if you buy it at a B & M store, you just gotta look at the card through the packaging. Mine came with a normal sized SD adapter as well. I got the card at Best Buy.

    Probably your best bet to be sure of a cards origin is to do what strummer12 did and buy it at a store where you can see the card. The downside of doing that is that you will probably pay 3 times as much at the store.

    Every kingston card I've dealt with have been Japanese SD-C01G.
    All have had a label on the back of the packaging stating SDC 1GB, and under that it states, made in Japan.

    Kinston packaging these days actually shows the tf card through the front window....where you can see SD-C01G though !!

    Those cards sound perfect to me....but no harm in double checking [​IMG]
