    Hi,

    I recently purchased a Sandisk 1GG MicroSD from a seller on Amazon New and Used, and I am a little concered it may be a fake - they also trade on ebay.

    Does anyone have a link to a guide, or can tell how you can spot a fake - specifically sankdisk if possible.

    My sandink card has a little sticker on thr back which says - made in taiwan - is this the same for other people?

    Thanks!

    Does it do everything in the way you want it to?
    If so, who cares if it's fake?

    If you bought it, and it was listed as 'bulk', and it was off amazon it most likely is not fake. Retailers get those sandisk 1GB MicroSD's for about 8 bucks, and they sell them for /much/ more. I doubt it is fake. If it is fake, it will be very apparent.

    I have used emartbuy quite a few times, rest assured they sell real sandisk cards, good customer service too, had to send a 2gig MiniSD back once and the turnaround time was great.
