Any fixes for fake usb flash drives?

I bought 8GB flash drives from GLG technologies (China), turned out to be 1GB. I have seen other advice but it gets confusing. Does anyone know a safe way to fix the flash drives. I bought 100 of them, so need to fix. Inside it says something like DDTIC on chip (best guess), Samsung 816, K9GB08U0M, PCBO, CSBG6710 on bigger black rectangle (best guess, writing small).

Also why does Microsoft bare no responsibility when it is their software that is giving a false capacity size? If their program (word?) gets deceived then surely they have been hacked (word?) and need to make a patch or other solution. Sorry if above statement is false, but Microsoft forum is so hard to figure out I have no contrary info.

You will notice whether it is 8Gb, 1Gb or even a flopy disc that there is always a small amount of data used for the devices own configuration. This will include the size of the drive, this is from the manufacturer not Microsoft.

If you click here and download killdisk this will show you how large your USB drives are, there may be more than Windows is showing you?
