How To Test The Capacity (Size) of MP Players, Memory Cards, USB Flash Drive Memory Sticks

Posted by techchips on September 14, 2009

To find the real capacity of nand flash memory storage chips, the best software that is “free” is H2testw.

To learn more read: H2testw 1.4 – Gold Standard In Detecting USB Counterfeit Drives. It has all the information you need to understand how the program works and where to get the download.

The software was written by Harald Bögeholz. It is copyrighted, but is offered to people to test their nand flash memory devices. The article also explains why it is the best testing software available and why it is recommended. People use it to test usb pen sticks, memory cards and mp players.

Update 20091023: If you find you have a fake capacity flash memory item and want to repair it, please consult the new FAQ at FixFakeFlash Inspectortech for important information on repairing fake flash memory items before you attempt to repair.

    Personally I don’t think it is worth “repairing” fake flash. Flash memory devices that have been programmed to fake capacities always have low quality memory chips that are prone to failure.

    Spending your time on returning a fake to it’s original capacity simply gives you something very unreliable with a limited life.

    It would be far far better if people who landed with a fake spent their time and energy on warning others rather than trying to “rescue” their fake.

    Either keep the darned thing just as you got it (as evidence of this sort of fraud) or destroy it so that no one can ever make the mistake of trying to use it.
