I have an option of buying a batch of "fake" 64 GB USB sticks, they are sold as 64 gb but the chip inside clearly says 16GB, However, when connected to the computer, it reports a 62 GB USB memory is connected. When I test it with my H2Testw 1.4 program, it onlys finds 15.2 GB of valid verifyable memory. I can't find a way to format it, eliminating the memory that is not physically there. Are these chips preprogrammed to report 64GB even if there is only a 16GB chip on? And if so, how do I re-program these sticks to the correct value??? Is there an EPROM on the little circuitboard that has been instructed to "lie" about the true value of the hardware??

Problem is the seller never replies to messages, just keep selling these fake USB Keys on ebay., They don't care, he has LOTS of negative feedback but obviously not enough to suspend the account.
