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.

My 2gb sandisk micro SD card reduce the size after formatting


Possible micro SD bad sectors. To check your micro SD bad sector or not, you use the HD Tune software. To restore the capacity micro SD, which is done is Low Level Format. You can use the software HDD Low Level Format Tool.

How to use HD Tune and HDD Low Level Format, you can see here

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!

How do u format sandisk microsd 2gb and microsdhc 4gb disks


You can only form sd Hc if your card reader is approved for SDHC use. It should tell you that on the outside of the card reader or in the documentation of the card reader.

If your drive isn't formatting 2gb, it could be that the driver was designed prior to 2gb cards being released. You could look for a new driver or replace it with a card reader that supports SD HC use as will as a 2 gb SD drive.
