I got an amazing deal on a 64gb card and took it.
The card arrived but the package looks a bit different from what I have on other cards (I have 5 different MicroSD cards).
I suspect it is not genuine.
The card is stamped with the following on its back:
Main in Taiwan
The package states Made in China...
Can anyone help me verify genuinity of this card?

From what I read on other forums (forgive me :-) ) H2testw can verify the available capacity.
I want to verify genuinety. To be sure it is a SanDisk product and not a counterfeit. ..
Thanks for your help.

Favorite ploy amongst the scammers; use an 8GB card and hack it to appear as a 64GB one. They did the same thing with the older 32GB cards. Where did you buy this card? If it was a seller on eBay, note that this is where a good portion of these fake cards are sold to people looking to get a deal. Report them IMMEDIATELY to eBay if this was the case.
