Chinese make infinite storage Hard drive, Which is damn cheap too !!

Chinese made infinite HDD

This story is from a person working at a hard-drive repair center in a Russian town, located near the chinese border.  This person has got a broken 500Gb USB-drive for repair from a guy who had bought in a chinese store across the river, for  insanely low price. But the drive was not working: if you, say , save a movie onto the drive, playing the saved movie back resulted in replaying just the last 5 minutes of the film.

The technician’s were in shock of their life time

They opened up the drive right before the astonished customer’s eyes and they saw what you see on the left.

It was a 128MB flash drive, working in a ‘looped’ mode – when it runs out of space, it starts overwriting from the beginning.  Those at the service center are still trying to figure out how did the chinese do that.  Because the drive reports correct file sizes and disk-capacity and the looped-overwriting does not touch the other files present on the drive.

The drive looks pretty convincing, lots of tech labels . The chinese salesman even saved something to the drive to demonstrate that it works in the store.

Beware next time when you buy storage devices for a dime !!
