    Not sure this is the correct section for this, it surely wouldn't be much fun!!

    If it's true, this would have to be one of the most amazing ripoffs of all time. Apparently [this is unconfirmed] a Russian gentleman ordered an el cheapo Chinese knock-off external hard drive. He couldn't work out why he kept losing all his data. When he opened it up he was amazed to find inside; a 128MB flash memory card plus two very large nuts (to add the extra weight).

    Apparently the memory card was programmed to automatically delete all data once it reached maximum capacity, and start over:

      Just goes to show if something seems too good to be true, it probably is!

        Yes Marko, the whole thing is really nuts. Not the sort of device one would want to squirrel away. Although it probably didn't cost peanuts and getting rid of it might be a be a bit of a wrench. I expect the perpetrators would have done a bolt by now anyway......to somewhere remote like Macadamia probably.

        This whole issue is certainly nothing to be sneezed at, ca..SHEW!! Oops sorry, bless me!!

        Sorry, just had to get that off my chest[nuts].

        :wacko2: :crazy:
