...and you thought your country had it tough

Last night, BlizzHackrei of TipidPC (source) plugged in a 2GB CD-R King USB flash drive to his PC and got a "USB Not Recognized" notification.

After a few failed attempts to make the thing work, he decided to crack open the disk to see what's wrong. Expecting to see the usual USB chipset, BlizzHackrei got dazed with what he saw inside:

Three guesses what it is. Give up? Look at the title below.

Alas, this is nothing new per se, it is just usually you know about it and there is a slot to change it out for you.  It isn't usually just encased as it is here.

BOOM ako dun.. sabi ko baket ganito ito? then binuksan ko yung Kingston Flashdrive ko na 4gb to compare the components at puro chipsets lang ang nakita ko sa Kingston 4gb Flashdrive ko.

pero yung 2gb microSD na nakalagay dun sa flashdrive na CDRKING ko gumagana pa sa mga CP kaya hindi WASTED yung Memory nung flashdrive, only the reader itself lang.

nagkaroon pa ko ng 2gb microSD ng wala sa oras na pwede ko gamitin sa CP kaso generic lang ito for sure. hehehehe!
