Has it been formatted yet? use Fat32 or NTFS for formatting to see the total capacity. In my computer check the properties.
If you are using this on a Windows 95 / 98 with u.s.b support unit with a Fat16 file system on your C: drive theres a very good chance it wont recognise its total capacity, otherwise if you could see its full capacity earlier the device may have some bad memory chips on it, or hasnt been disabled before removal one to many times..

If its brand new it may not have been formated in the right file structure for your o/s especially if its an older version of windows pre-2000 although I think Windows Mellenium edition (sigh -shudder) might support ntfs format.

Good luck with this one.

What?  Perhaps you mean your SDHC SD memory card can only store 2GB of data because your card reader and its drivers are pre-SDHC?  Usually formatting isn't an issue.  You get a "disk full" error after 2MB, copying from some file manager?  What, really?

My computer won't recognize my cruzer micro 8gb stick. I don't want to reformat, because I have at least 1000 pictures, plus Quickbooks, Legacy and other data on it. Anyone have any ideas?


some older pcs wont recognise sticks and sd cards larger than 4gb. it will probabaly be down to the version and service pack of windows you are using.

Unusable memory


When you reformat a memory stick it creates a trash folder which stores all the data incase you need to use it again. Put your memory stick in your psp then connect your psp via usb to a computer, in the computer view of the momory stick make sure you have the 'view hidden folders' option checked, then delete all folders & files on the stick. Remove the psp from the computer & reformat it again you should find 8gb available again

Memory Stick Pro Duo 8GB on PsP


Two possibilities.
1. The firmware on your PSP is too old to recognise the 8GB (only recognises up to 4GB).
2. If firmware is up to date you have a fake memory stick (easy way to check is to check the info for the memory stick on your PSP if its says that MAGIC GATE is unknown rather than supported then it is fake.

The fake ones typically double compress the data so that it appears to have 8GB when in reality it does not.
