2 Ways to Detect Fake SD Card

I’ve  had a lot of hilarious experiences getting a
Memory or SD card of 16GB only to discover that its just 2GB SD Card. I’ve also
use some tools online like memory card expander that has the capacity to
expand, flash drives, memory card and the likes from 2GB to 8GB. But what
actually bothers my mind is there should be a tool to check for fake SD

Have you ever wondered why on earth you
remove your SD card from your Smartphone, only for you to return it back inside
and it tells you “memory card corrupted”? Have you been in a situation where
you pay heavily to get a 32GB SD card, only for you to discover that it can
only take 8GB files and data.
But I’ll be showing briefly, on how to
detect a fake memory card so that you won’t fall victim next time. Relax, and
follow me carefully.
I’ll talk about two tools right away.
How Can I Detect a Fake SD Card?

==>SD Insight: The packaging on SD
cards can make it difficult to distinguish a fake SD card from the real thing.
But with SD insight, you can easily get that done. SD Insight is a free, fast
and easy-to-use mobile application to view SD card manufacturing details,
original size and lot more.

cell phone. (Note: You may need to turn off your cell phone to do this).
3. Launch the SD Insight application.
In seconds your SD card information is displayed in an easy to understand
format on the cell phone’s screen.
4. You can see information such as
manufacturer name, date of manufacture, and the product name and serial number.
Click the Menu button to see more detailed information about your memory card.
5. If you have more than one memory
card in your device, you will also be able to see details for each of the
memory cards.
6. You can also view validation of the
SD Card against its class rating for the minimum data transfer rate (e.g.
Classes 2, 4, 6 and 10)
==>H2testw: H2testw is a free tool
that can be used to test for Counterfeit or Fake USB flash drives, and check
your USB Flash Drive for errors. It works by filling the chosen target drive with
test data and then reads this data back to verify it.

card. Those of you who has fake SD Card, lets here your opinion on this.

    • HEllo friend,
      You only need to go to appworld, you'll see the notification update, click on it and your update should begin.

      You also need a wi-fi or hotspot connection to do that. Its pretty easy.

    • Do you mean directly from your android hotspot? Put your phone in airplane mode and turn it off again
      Dial *777*0# and what message did you get?

  1. Prof, please my Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime hotspot can only be shared with only PC alone, and it can't be shared with phones. Also, it cannot received or search hotspot from another phone. Help me out. Thanks.

    • Hello Friend,
      Your Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime can be shared with other phones toooo. Make sure other phones you want to share it with has a wi-fi connection to detect your hotspot. If it doesn't have a wifi it won't detect your hotspot.

      To search hotspot from another phone, make sure you turn ON your Wi-Fi connection. If its turn off, it won't search nor receive hotspot connections from another device.

      Have you done the above and it still give you thesame result?

    • Hello Kingsley,
      Glo BIS settings
      Apn : blackberry.net
      leave password and username empty. set it has your default connection.

      Remember to use glo bis on android, you'll need to tweak your imei to that of Blackberry imei.

  2. Hello Prince,
    Thanks for this update but did you really try Glo bis on it, or another imei and it worked fine?

    The reason why I'm asking is because I've heard alot of people still complaining that it doesn't really change the imei that the moment you uninstall the Imei changer, your imei return back to normal.

    I want to know if you've try Glo bis or tweak any of this imei on it and it worked just fine for it. I know it works with Xiami, doesn't work with HTC, works with Samsung but I can't really verify if it changes the imei to use glo bis on it.

  3. oga prof i greet you. please help me with a working tweak since my Etisalat 500mb and mtn 2015mb has exoired i was unable to generate a new working one. plz help me out

  4. Don't buy memory cards or phones sold by the boys hawking them on the road side at Ikeja. You will only regret and hardly get a refund. Rather buy from a reputable shop. Or better still go to a shop that sells only cameras with its accessories and buy your memory card from them.
