On counterfeit SD cards
#23
In my experience from a few years ago you could f3probe /dev/sdc and get a read if the card/or other flash is fake.
A few years ago the big auction site most sellers of fake flash would do a quick refund for all memory that came up fake to keep their store open and ratings good.
I personally only buy from big stores with established supply chains and very carefully inspect the packaging for flash media and batteries as both are quite available commodities around the world and also frequently counterfeited.
In any case have your receipt in hand, buy form established corporate retailers who would rather have a relationship with a flash vendor like sandisk and also have the deep pockets to fear lawsuits for selling counterfeits, and f3probe your media when you get home to be sure.
I only use Asian discount and auction sites for 8GB and below sized cheap flash memory for embedded stuff or as give away full of data or media like floppy disks of old.
