Software Sunday EP14: Make Fake Flash Media Usable With BOOTICE


In this installment of Software Sunday we are going to look at a way to set a fake micro SD cards back to their actual capacity. This method can be applied to nearly any other flash storage medium including flash drives and full size SD cards. We will be doing this via partitioning, this method does not modify the medium’s firmware. Via BOOTICE we can set a partition to the drives actual capacity and mark the rest of the “fake capacity” as hidden.

  1. If it says: WRITE FILE FAILED ACCESS DENIED ,then open CMD and write in the following command lines:
    list disk
    then figure out which is the fake data storage's number what you want to downsize from the listed disks and then type in the following command line:
    select disk 1 (the number is the fake data storage's number so maybe it will be different in your case)
    list disk ( if you want to make sure if it's selected, the selected disk will be marked with *, this step is not necessary)
    clean Make sure that you've selected the right disk, and that there is no data on the storage device because this command will delete everything from the disk, it will even delete the partition from it (this is why this method works while formatting the drive is not)(you don't have to write anything after the word "clean", just simply type in clean and hit enter)
    After that follow the steps shown in this video.

  2. THANK YOU!!!! I bought a "128GB microSD card" It was actually a 32 gb but yeah thanks i was trying to look for a video or article like this and i finally found one.

  3. Thanks bought 256 GB samsung Select, Ran H2test came out to be only 15.9 GB. Though got refund from seller without return so used this to settle it with 16gb(actual 14.6Gb) Flash Card. I guess thats my compensation.:)

  4. I have a 64gb flash drive and i copied some files on it and i came other day and it just wouldnt mount it only shows in device manager and diskpart says its no media 0b
