    I'll grab my model numbers when I get home.

    Well my two 64gb cards with smaller capacity is the Taiwanese model and the one that is proper capacity is the Japanese I guess this is also why when you look on eBay the ones from the Japanese region cost a little more.

    Also watch out when buying from ebay or some other places. People sell fake SD cards and USB drives. They take a small size, and make it look like a larger one. Even will show the large size in the PC. But after trying to copy stuff, you will experience data loss.

    I bought a 128GB Kingston USB stick off eBay. I knew it was going to be fake, because it was so cheap. But I was curious and wanted to check it out. Turned out to actually be less than 2GB. It showed 128GB when I put it in my PC though.

    You can use a program to verify your SD cards and USB sticks are truly what they say. And even fix fake ones to work again at the true size. I think I used this: http://www.rmprepusb.com/tutorials/-fake-usb-flash-memory-drives

    I still have it and use it for remarry BD files. Lol.

    Ok, but in this case you have 2 64GB vita only cards. One is 57GB and second is 59-60GB. Same file system, same fomating tool, same operating system, etc.
    PCH-Z641G just have smaller capacity.

    I suppose if you have the card and not the box you can just put it in your Vita to check?
    Yeah ebay is bad for that, I don't really buy from ebay anymore unless I want something cheap like a plastic box or a non important cable and don't care about its quality. There is just too much refurbished stuff getting shrink wrapped and sold as new so you cant even trust the real stuff, and then of course fakes sold as genuine.

    well, there r apps for sd cards at least to determine if they're real. the apps will pad the card with 0s to see how much it can actually hold. oh, we were talking about different region cards. I had forgotten about that. my bad.

    I've recently been looking for a vita card but it looks like they are becoming rare in game shops leaving it mostly places I don't trust to try my luck.
