Two Ways To Know An Original SD Card / Memory Card by gbengapeter(m): 7:51am On Apr 28, 2018
Did you just bought a memory card and you which to test it’s originality for you to know if it’s good or bad. You can confirm this in many ways but what we will be discussing about here is just with the use of these simple steps below. Kindly follow up so as to get your problem solved before leaving this article.

How To Check Your Memory Card If itz Fake Or Original



It In Your Phone And Format It – Formatting your memory card is the best way to test your memory card status, because during this process your phone will scan the memory card and will try to delete all the stuffs on it. If it is successfully scanned and formatted this means your memory card is good and okay. But if not, it means you have bought a fake memory card with virus, so you need to remove it from your phone before it damage your phone.
Note that if you can’t find the format option on your phone, you will need to use your phone’s Antivirus app to format it. The option is always there.

2) Check The SD card Details Very Well – Check for all the necessary things on the memory card before purchases it. Check the serial number, the manufacturer and the country it was imported from. This option is not really advisable because both the bad and good SD cards look alike. Only people with experience can use this method. Better still you should ask the person selling it for you that you want good one because those selling it always recognize fake to original.

So u think a fake memory card will fail to format? Dude u are funny. The best way to buy a genuine SD card is to buy from reputable stores like slot, more expensive than roadside but u are getting the real deal, that is where I buy all my SD cards. A fake SD card will format but will be very slow to write and read files. I remember a friend's fake 'sandisk' card that I tried sending a file of 1gb into.. it took almost 1 and half hour to transfer a file of 1gb. The kind of SD cards that will struggle to play high quality music files.

The best way to know if an SD card is fake or genuine is to download SD insight from the play store, launch the app and if the sd card is genuine it will show the name, manufacture date and capacity, just like the image below. And if u wanna know write and read speed, download A1 SD bench. If ur Sd class is class 4 the it should write at average of 4MB/s, class 6 should write t 6MB/s, class 10 should be around 10MB/s. If ur write speed is way off the class written on the SD card then its probably fake.

Some phones have compatibility issues, either with processor or OS. Not a big deal, if u want the app badly search online for workaround. As per this SD insight, download the app for version 1.5.8. It would work. Check the message right above this.

Man, I read this thread and didn't know what to be angry at; his horrible English or his silly test of formatting a memory card.

Both fake and genuine memory card will be formatted in any phone.

You have said nothing important here.

Fake memory cards format all the time. And checking the serial number, manufacturer and country of production?

Common. How will one even detect fake using such method since counterfeiters have been adding any name they like to their products since time immemorial.

The first person to comment made a lot of sense. I suggest you try out the app, find other methods and update your blog post.

I tried purchasing a memory card today, I inserted it my phone then format it successfully but I wasn't satisfied yet. To ascertain what I was buying I had to carry out another test. I copied files from my phone memory and pasted on the memory card and tried accessing it but it wasn't going through, that's when I spoke to my leg and off it took me.
The above method has being working fine for me since I knew my way around a phone, probably since the 80's.
The second method doesn't seem accurate enough cause almost every item is produced by a brand, so those details might eventually not be as accurate as we thought it. Only expert should approach using this method.

Yes it's written in a circle. Picture 1 is class 6, picture 2 is class 10

HC stands for high capacity (4-32gb)
XC stands for extended capacity (64gb-2tb)

U stands for ultra high speed

U1: write speed of minimum of 10 MB/s
U3: write speed of minimum of 30MB/s. Very fast, found mostly on 128gb upwards SD cards.
