    I know that if I buy a Kingston 1GB Micro SD card, I could get a Taiwanese one, but if I get a Toshiba one, is it definitely a C01G Japanese one?
    I see one on TradeMe (like eBay) for $18.50NZD (about $14.10USD) including shipping.

    Too late, I bought it.
    Some confirmation would still be nice though.

    Lol. You didn't wait long for a reply. I would have gone for a 2GB, as it's a very high chance of getting Japan because they only make them there now.

    I was under the belief that the Toshiba's were all Made In Japan. My 1GB and 2GB are both Made In Japan.

    Yeah, I bought it because it was ~$10 cheaper than all the other ones on TradeMe, and it would have bee bought.
    Yeah, I wanted a C01G to use as a sort of benchmark card, due to them being the fastest MicroSD card.
    Lets hope it is a C01G.

    The 1GB Japanese ones have faster random access time but slower read speeds in general than the 2GB Japanese ones.

    Well, whether it is the fastest or not, it generally is used as a benchmark card in most reviews, so having one won't be a bad thing.

    On a side note, anyone know anything about where the 2GB Transcend ones are made? My one works flawlessly, no skipping in the DoS intro, no freezing in PoR.

    THere should be a standard for speeds and access times on MicroSD like for pretty much all other memory. I have a REALLy hard time even finding that sort of information for a lot of brands, especially if purchased at a local store.

    To answer your original question, all C01G/2G Japanese cards are manufactured by Toshiba and sold as OEM to others.
