Is my AK2025 really 16GB ? Think not

Postby dreamerman » Thu Jul 16, 2009 12:32 am

My new MP3 player AK2025 is supposed to be 16GB but I am not too sure. The following is written on the sole chip:
SAMSUNG 925
K9GAG08U0M PCB0
YCE6P7ABC
I did a search & found "K9GAG08U0M-PCB0 is a 51 nm 16 Gbit (2 Gbit x 8 bit) NAND flash memory". Am getting confused. Is 16G bit x 0.125 = 2GB ?
I just got scammed on a 16GB USB flash & in communication with the ebay seller for redress.

I think its 2GB...

But make a test: Try to fill your player with files (any file: songs, movies, applications, etc) and see if it can save more than 2GB of files. If yes, continue to fill it until to reach (or not) 16 GB.

EDIT: Verified, its 2GB: http://www.samsung.com/global/business/semiconductor/productList.do?fmly_id=672

Thanks but I am afraid I may stuff it up & can't use it anymore. Have seen posts where people tried to load-up to see actual capacity but later can't delete those files. Also have read in other posts that AK2025 is rather a new scam & the existing way to size it back to proper capacity won't work. Would be thankful if you can point me to the right direction.

You may recreate partition, to make a real 2GB. To do that, use tools you received in a cd with your player.

Useless tools in CD not in English. So I downloaded MP3 Player Utilities 5.09 & Format Factory V2.0. I read somewhere that the MP3 Player Utility don't work for AK2025 (oops not AK2050 in title bar). Do you know if that is true ?

Yes, you are right, just as you countered,i think it is 2GB,but when we going to buy it, when can not know the real space of it, so you must be scammed.
