Sd card format/volume problem

I recently bought a Sandisk 2GB SD card. It worked fine in my i-mate JAM but I then decided to try it in my digial camera. Don't ask me why but I decided to format the card in my digital camera. The result is that I now have a single volume of 979MB instead of the previous 2GB. I've looked at the card under Windows XP disk management I can definitely see that it has formatted the card with a single volume and left an unformatted volume. Question: how do I remove the volume so I can reformat my card in my PPC to its true 2GB size? My existing SD card formatter in my PPC resolutely believes this is now a 1GB card instead of a 2GB card. I've been to the Sandisk site but it doesn't seem to contain an answer. Can anyone here help????? LouisB "I'm a half-wit. I sold the other half on e-Bay" I have the same problem. I recently formatted my 2gb microSD card, but it only shows up as 956mb now. How do I change it back to its original 2gb?

    I have the same problem. I am tyring to format a SanDisk 2GB Memory Card and it is failing when I try format it as FAT32. The problems I see with other users on this forum I have experienced when formating just using FAT. FAT only has the capabilities of reading up to 1 GB--correct me if I am wrong. The answer is to format the card to FAT32, but I am having issues formatting the card in my HP laptop.

It's a fake card probably from Hong Kong.

What type sandisk mirco sd cards work?


You didn't buy a microSD card, you bought a microSDXC card.

The Eclipse 180 works with microSD cards (2GB or smaller) and microSDHC cards (32GB or smaller). It does not work with microSDXC cards.

I recently bought a SanDisk 4GB SDHC card for my DXG-572V. I put it in the camera, and I turned the power on. A screen comes up saying "Format Card?". I have tried selecting both "Yes" and "No", but...


Your problem is that you are trying to use an incompatible memory card.

The DXG-572V is not SDHC compliant and will only work with regular SD cards. In theory it's compatible up to 4GB but in practice there are few standard SD devices which work well with standard SD cards above 2GB.

Tried to download software for r4 micro sd card 4gb sh but does'nt work.comes on the ds loading ,works fine with 2gb sd card,any ideas? thank's colin


Hey there Colin,

The original R4 card only works with Micro-SD cards up to 2GB in size. To use Micro-SD cards up to 32GB, you need to buy the newer R4 SDHC card or a Nintendo DSi comaptible card. Check out R4 Cards / R4 DS Cards from DSCardWorld.com or NDS-Gear.com (NDS-Gear is probably better if you live in Europe or Canada as their shipping's slightly better internationally).

Good luck!

Canon PowerShot SD 630 Digital Elph "Memory Card Error"


Hi,
I'm sorry to tell that PowerShot SD 630 does not support SDHC cards over 2 gig.
If you want the camera to take a card over 2 gig then you are stuck standard SD cards.
The other camera does support the card because it's a higher model.


Regards.

Trying to give format to a 2GB SD Card in a Konica


try to copy the same format of your 32 MB card. Most likely you deleted the volume label of the 2gb sd card.

My argus cintar DC5315 will not work with a 2GB SanDisk SD card


Due to the devices age (i have one too, i bought it Christmas 2005) its internal parts are not as strong as newer cameras, and therefore, cannot support as much memory as new cameras. I have an 8gb SD card and the camera does not even turn on with that much space, but with 128MB it works just fine.

Sd card format/volume problem


Hi,

Its better to avoid using disk management to format to format the card.

Use this formatter to format(usually the memory cards are factory formatted in the FAT or FAT 3).

http://panasonic.jp/support/audio/sd/download/ftp/sdfv2003.exe

Or

ftp://ftp.vaio-link.com/pub/memstick/drivers/MSFMTINST250.exe

Usually its better to format the card using the phone only. 

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.
