How to test for Hacked Memory in your MP3 / MP4 Player
Testing for hacked memoryThere is a way to test for hacked memory in your MP3 Player (it also applied to USB memory sticks and storage).
Download the " H2testw" test program from here (copy and paste):
This will carry out a test on the device to identify its true capacity. If you have a player that is behaving erratically you should test it to be sure.
If you find you have a fake memory device you should contact the seller immediately and demand a refund or compensation for the lower memory device. Hopefully this will help you if you think you have a dodgy player!
Fake iPodsSome of these unscrupulous sellers also try and sell these "ipod lookalikes" (as shown in the top photo) as genuine "limited edition" or "non-UK" ipods - just because they look very similar. Some of the points to note on these lookalikes:
- scroll wheel - isn't a scroll wheel at-all you have to press each button
- doesn't have the apple software - just the regular mp3 / mp4 player Chinese software (with multiple languages)
- may have hacked memory as above
- is not compatible with iTunes sync - you have to drag and drop your music over like a USB drive
