Hi,

I just bought a 16 GB Sandisk Extreme 45MB/s SD card from a reputable, local shop. It came in a legit-looking package, with this serial code for the RescuePRO DELUXE program. The card does work inside the camera (and otherwise), but Mac's Disk Utility calls it a Generic Mass Storage device. Did I just buy a fake?

Yes, but maybe you can donate it to a local school and get a real computer.  :p

Did you format it in the camera? Mine usually all come up as Eos Digital, but that comes from the root file name assigned by the camera.

edit: under the properties it does show up as "generic". Which is pretty standard for a memory card in my machine at least.

I did format it after seeing the name. The drive's title is actually "no name", but when I check it with Disk Utility, it says it's generic.

Well, I did a "real world" test - shot with the 70D at High speed continuous, and the memory card cleared the buffer in 8 seconds - as test results on the web have shown. So I guess it is legit after all. And if it's not, than it's just as good as the real deal, at least speed-wise.

It's also possible that the card reader that you are using is the culprit....

Could be. Anyway, it works fast enough so I'll just keep it. The box with the serial number also suggest it's a genuine copy, and the card itself has a serial number imprinted on it, whereas fake ones are known to have no serial number anywhere on them.
