I bought a “16Gb Samsung” from this qiongzhuzhijia. It turned out to only have a 4Gb chip on board (SpecTek FBNL52A32K3W2) with AU6983HL controller. I couldn’t get any of the Alcor MP tools to recognise it in order to re-flash it to the correct size.
I found a reference to a HP Tool, designed for their DriveKey sticks to make them bootable, which seems to have done the business for my stick.
I simply ran the HP Drive Key Boot Utility, and told it to make the stick bootable, and not only did it put a bunch of files on there (which I promptly deleted), but it changed the capacity of the device to it’s correct 4Gb (from 16Gb). I didn’t get the opportunity to specify the size, so it either works it out itself, or it always selects 4Gb, I’m afraid I don’t know.
Unlike an MP Tools flash which properly “fixed” my other stick (an 8Gb, really 2Gb stick from Lianghk2007), the HP tool does things slightly differently. If you look at the drive with the windows Disk Management tool, it’s capacity is still set to 16Gb, however, it now has a 4Gb partition (with 12Gb unused space). The 4Gb partition passes the H2TestW test no problem. I wondered whether the HP format might be a good solution for those sticks that people can’t re-flash properly.
BTW – I got full refunds from both Lianghk2007, and qiongzhuzhijia as soon as I reported them to eBay/PayPal.

And also, I am really curious on how it's possible, to somehow change/update configuration to be able to store 4x as much data then containable...

I have tried that, and it worked just fine...
