ChipGenius is software used to identify VID and PID information in flash memory. ChipGenius works well when the correct VID and PID have been programmed into the flash chip controller (see Flash Chip Supplier and Flash Chip Part Number for examples). VID is vendor information, PID is flash chip controller information. Software does not work well in identifying the VID and PID of flash memory chips when unscrupulous makers of fake flash memory chips use the wrong VID and PID.
Upgrading flash memory chips is to lie about their true capacity. This is big business, done on an industrial scale. People use machines that can format low-level, 12, 24 or 48 units at a time. They often forget to reset the VID and PID to match the item they are updating. When this happens, ChipGenius will report incorrect information. This can lead to choosing the wrong low-level reformatting software. If the wrong low-level reformatting software is used, it can lead to the destruction of the flash memory item - it cannot be repaired. Sloppy reprogramming of flash memory chips is on the rise. When people use ChipGenius to successfully repair their components, they tend to skip an important step - saving the information reported by ChipGenius, especially the VID and PID information. After finding a low-level formatting tool online, instead of checking the software options (advanced settings) they hurriedly click the repair option to restore the true capacity. Many people discover that the VID and PID information has changed. ChipGenius reports what it sees in the same way the operating system reports the capacity it sees (false size). This software does not perform a detailed query of the USB controller chip or flash memory chip - it simply looks up the VID and PID match in the database and passes that information back to the software.
Vitesse du programme satisfaisante
Une interface utilisateur lourde mais accessible. J'ai réussi à trouver ce que je cherchais, même si j'ai dû y consacrer un certain temps.
Le programme est très avancé
Problèmes lors de la première utilisation du programme
Il est difficile de trouver ce que je cherche, mais le programme fonctionne bien et je ne peux pas trop m'en plaindre.
great variety of useful information easy to upgrade flash memory
I like that I can see the reported information by the software about the capacity status of my system, I think I will use this software for a long time.
