Dongles all the way from Resolve 8 still work, as long as nobody broke them. Try it and see, the download is free.

That looks like an authentic dongle. If it is a fake, it won’t work with v15.2, though it will work on older versions. Remember, no money reaches BMD with fake purchases.

Yours looks authentic. See here for what a counterfeit looks like (authentic on top, counterfit on bottom).

Care to elaborate? I don't see the difference between that and my authentic dongle that came with an Ursa Mini 4.6K.

The resolve logo is off center...

But the real test is to check different versions of software: if only one works, it's a crack.

The sticker is just placed on the dongle crooked. Could be a manufacturing oddity. But like you said, the real test is in seeing if 15.2.1 will accept it.

That's no indicator, on my original Fusion dongle the label is also slightly off center.

It shouldn't be a sticker: in the one Marc showed it is serigraph....

Love how that place moderates reviews. Probably had 100 people trying to warn others off of it, but they just delete them in during moderation, Lol.

The one Marc showed is the photo that I took, and it is definitely a sticker. The textured finish on the sticker is just different.

My dongle also has a sticker. It bought it from an authorized reseller and it continues to work in version 15.2.1. Apparently there are also official dongles with stickers.

Guys

My dongle is authentic... I bought it with my BMCC 2.5K camera.... Now I got the BMPCC4K camera with the SD card version.... I want to sell this dongle and some buyer asked if it can be used with Resolve 15... I'm not around a reasonable computer so I cannot test...

what makes you think an authentic dongle wouldn't work?

Tom:

I would think that they would try to limit the newer Resolve releases to the newer SD card version.... That's my thought process anyway... (I bought this dongle with my camera around 5-6 years ago). I have an old mid 2011 iMac 21" at home, I will try it out...

Anyway, is there any reason to keep an USB dongle if I already have the SD card version with BMPCC4K?

Peter Chamberlain has stated that dongles as far back as version 6 still work. These are from well before Blackmagic acquired Resolve (that was 8 or 9).
