A fake card ?

hi all,

 

I bought a CF extrem  IV 8Gb on Ebay but I suspect that this card is a fake becouse is very slow on my camera. My camera is a sony a700 full compatible with this card.

The only warranty that I have is the label on the card. How do I check the correct version of the product? There is a software for this purpose?

 

thank you

Personally I'd call the Technical Support I heard they have a way of telling

(866) - 7263475 (SANDISK)

I bought a 4GB off of EBAY and according to EBAY's fake guides, mine is, however, I called Sandisk support and gave them the BH06 number or whatever off of the bottom and they say it is legit, however, I have also read that they can now fake this number too!

 

Any thoughts?

Re: A fake card ?

the best way to tell is to send some pictures of the card to sandisk support and let them review. they should be able to make a determination whether the card is real or fake.

Hello!

 

I think i made that mistake too! I can't get the ordered "4GB extreme IV CF card" yet, but i'm afraid that will be fake, becouse i read some alike disappointed buyers feedbacks.

 

 

"the best way to tell is to send some pictures of the card to sandisk support and let them review. they should be able to make a determination whether the card is real or fake." 

  

Where/how can i send the pictures about the card to Sandisk support team?

 

If it is a fake card, what can they do? Sandisk lawyers begin any criminal law procedure against jockey?

 

What can I do? (besides of course that i try to get back my money!)

I wrote: 

"Hi! If it is a fake card, - I hope not! - please don't send it either, and refund my money immediately! 

i will test it and if it is not original i will start a criminal law procedure! I hope so you will send genuie a sandisk!"

"Sorry, we made a mistake, thought you received the fake card, as we just changed the supplier,so we issue the refund to you first, if the item turn on,please send the item back to us, thank you"
