Actually that copied memory card isn't too bad. It's better than datel memory cards as it behaves much, much closer to the real thing. That memory card has something interesting about it. Since all copies of it have the same serial number on the controller chip, if you install a DVD driver update on your pirated MC, copy it with uLAUNCHELF and mail me them, I can copy them back to my pirate MC identical to yours and it will work just fine. (I have two of that memory card) and funny enough, mine didn't fail yet. I'll try them with RE4 to see what happens. I bought the pirate cards just out of curiosity and turned out they're very interesting, technically.
A comment about the MC case which can help to identify counterfeits without opening them:
Have a good look at the case, you will notice that the counterfeit card is smoother than the real one, the color is also darker. The original one has a grayish black tone and the copies have a smooth black tone.
The ink with the "8MB MEMORY CARD" can be easily scratched out and on the real thing it's like if it was melted in the plastic.
The back sticker on a fake card had the number "03-01 3-966-459-03 (13)" in the back. It was probably copied from a real card from 2003.
My real one has just "05-01" and the color of the gray ink sticker is darker on the fake MC.
If you see them in a shop ths could help you on figure out if it's a fake. But on Ebay the seller could just put a pic of a real card and send you a fake.
And lol yes Hynix has nothing to do with that card, besides the fact they made the flash chip on it.
