The link in your first post is broken. Clearly they change their website since you posted it in January. Here is the new link: https://www.mcumall.com/store/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=41

I'm late to the party i know, but i just wanted to say that i have one of these and it does read bad blocks, and it can also copy the bad blocks to a  new chip with the "smart copy" function, i got it just because of that.

Hi Krugger,

Thanks for the info.  Looks great, I wish I could use it.
Unfortunately, MCUmall are dragging their feet over activating the software.
Seems like if you have a second hand unit they don't want to know...

That's not a smart copy, its a plain dumb copy.
Works fine if the new device doesn't have any bad blocks, or bad blocks in the same place as the old device.
Otherwise you are screwed.

A smart copy would make an effort to interpret a NAND filesystem and move blocks when required, adjusting filesystem pointers.

Also, I advise people to avoid MCUmall.
Very slow and unprofessional technical support.
