To be fair, I go through phases. Sometimes I enjoy gaming and play a little too much, other times I get fed up and the last thing I want to do is stare at the TV.. In the last 2 months I've probably played a total of 5-7 hours... probably over the space of about 3 days though :lol:

I have a cone filter *eep* but the original filter was a paper cone, and I just replaced it with a cheap cotton cone, still sitting in the airbox though.. I reckon it's about the same :D

#401943 Recommend Everyone Who Buys A Memory Card Does This!!!

Posted by Ianb on 26 August 2014 - 09:45 PM

Just to add, when I stuck the card in the computer I clicked on my computer and it showed the memory card and it even said 32GB FREE!


So it completely fooled the computer!


Happy to share this info with anyone and everyone. Nothing worse than finding a 'bargain' only to find out it's a complete waste of money!


Still working with ebay to get my hard earned pennies back!

Guys, I set up a thread about what I'd recommend EVERYONE does when they buy a memory card online, you never know whether yours has 100% legit memory or whether the majority will turn up corrupted!!!


I nearly got conned!



#401898 Recommend Everyone Who Buys A Memory Card Does This!!!

Step by step for those who need help (I did!)


Download the program.


- Open up the h2testw_1.4zip folder

- Double click h2testw.exe

- Click Run

- For me I had a security warning - again click run..

- Select English

- Select your target - The memory card



This next bit is up to you, initially I ran the entire card (so all 32000MBytes)...it took a couple hours so if you have a bigger card it'll take longer. What I have read is that the majority of cards are around 8GB that have been hacked, so in theory you could just run 10000MBytes and see what happens (I did this the 3rd time and got the same results after the 7.3GB of GOOD data!)...


Anyway, choose whichever, all or less than all, and click "write and verify" and just wait for it to finish!

Hi guys, you may all know all this stuff but.. to set the scene I'll give you an insight:


I recently went onto ebay and saw a wonderful bargain - It was a Sandisk Micro SD card, 32GB Class 10 etc, for about £10. I ordered it and it arrived in it's little jiffy bag... Opened it up and realise the word 'sandisk' is no where to be found... the packaging looks generic, no words relating to size of the card etc...


So I did some research feeling peed off that it wasn't a sandisk and came across an article mentioning how many memory cards for sale online are hacked so that they show a greater size than they actually possess. So I came across a program which was recommended:




What it does is it writes files onto the memory card you've selected and then tests the files...


So I ran the program on the card I had and the results were quite frightening:


The media is likely to be defective.
7.3 GByte OK (15484599 sectors)
23.7 GByte DATA LOST (49830217 sectors)
Details:0 KByte overwritten (0 sectors)
0 KByte slightly changed (< 8 bit/sector, 0 sectors)
23.7 GByte corrupted (49830217 sectors)
0 KByte aliased memory (0 sectors)
First error at offset: 0x00000001d88d6e00
Expected: 0x00000001d88d6e00
Found: 0xcc2fe3e537ad8574
H2testw version 1.3
Writing speed: 6.32 MByte/s
Reading speed: 12.2 MByte/s
Anyone that understands the above probably knows what they're doing, but to us layman, basically what it means is that 7 GB of my "32GB card" was real and the rest is bogus BS - so ~ 23% of what I paid for works the rest is rubbish...
What it also means is that I could be there snapping away photos and I'd be able to keep 23% of them!
So as I said, run this on anything you buy, especially if you're using a dashcam, what happens if someone rolls back onto you and it's not included in the 7.3 GB's?? = your fault!
Good luck

#401754 Advice?

Hi mate have you tyres getting a different head unit stereo with more bass setting ? I've got a Sony 62x4 watt in mine going with all edge speakers and sub sounds good to be honest mate lol

Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC


I haven't to be honest. I'm fairly happy with the standard head unit at the moment and really I'm after a sub I can just plug in, and then if I have to really load the car up, I can unplug it and throw it in the house (so to speak...) 


Plus also, I'm days away from starting a crazy new step in my life so money is and will be extremely tight for a while now, so if I had a spare £30-40 or something I'd like to pick up a cheap sub/amp and try that out... Take my fiancée out...

#401049 Dash Cam Dangerous Driving Clips, Should You Be Able To Up Load Evidence To T...

Posted by Ianb on 23 August 2014 - 07:20 PM

Catch, I can see where you're coming from, but I think Clives earlier comment regarding a Policeman on every corner was his (and others) ways of saying that is the sort of optimal number (if not overstaffed!) - someone could offensively !Removed! at you and they'd be easily collared...


What you suggest about proactive policing in terms of accepting camera footage would require extra staff and then the big argument would come along in the forms of:

1. Who is going to pay for these extra staff considering the police are affected by cutbacks at the moment already?

2. If you're then going to employ people to make decisions on these videos as to whether a crime is committed or not, then wouldn't it be better to have them out on the street corners keeping a watch (or indeed in police cars look for road criminals)...which again is sort of back to part 1.

3. The paperwork.. IF you do employ these people to sit at desks and watch videos, there is going to be a heck of a lot of paper work to be done, probably more of a case of 1 hour of paperwork (if not more) to 1 video - which is going to be approx 5 mins at the most...


To guess the amount of useless drivers, In 2013 2.47million vehicles were registered...

1% of that is 24,700, so if we say 24,700 useless drivers that were actually caught on camera in 1 year (again I'm making this up)...

Now bear in mind that there is only 8,760 hours in 365 days (1 year)... If we again take up my made up figure of 1 hour paperwork per incident handed in - It doesn't fit into 1 year... so that's now a job for more than one person = more money spent..again back up to point 1.


It's all potentially possible but naturally it all = £££... and then once you actually locate that money you have to ask questions as to whether opening up a video viewing department is the highest priority?


Of course for yourself nearly losing loved ones, the answer may very well be yes! To myself, who has had loved ones saved from cancer, I could argue that if the government finds this spare cash maybe it's better spent in saving others from cancer. To everyone else on the forum, they might have loved ones killed in wars overseas who weren't provided with the latest body armour, so money should be spent there.


I still say the best bet is to try and create a big YT channel and have everyone join in uploading and highlighting these incidents. Social media is huge these days, if a video is so awful it'll get passed and shared from pillar to post until a bobby or someone in power will get it investigated...


EDIT: I read what you've written about pushing incidents beyond the policing stage and into the punishment/judgement stage... Again that is a matter for the law makers and the courts, unfortunately it's probably an extremely difficult thing for them to stamp out.


Watched Police Interceptors? They always pull someone over who has no licence, or has been banned, no insurance, no tax, stolen cars etc etc... Unless these people get locked up for life (or get rope round their necks) there is no way of stopping them... I mean I remember one episode (might of been another police camera show?) where a guy was pulled over for speeding and he was found to have something like 15 points on his licence...15??I thought 12 was max? you say!... indeed, but this poor chap NEEDED his licence for work, otherwise he'd be out of a job... I can't remember the outcome, something like another 3 points and a kick up the bum or something... but no licence lost!
