I asked for it to be re-opened due to the fake cards issue.

Incidentally, I have been checking out TradeMe and Sella and there are an awful lot of suspect SDmicro being sold there eg no brand name, just SDMicro on the case. I have purchased a pair 4/8Gb of Strontium from a seller on Sella will advise how they go.
Also if you ever get your hands on a suspect micro there is a wee test program you can use to verify its cosher (as in has the right amount of storage)
