I just got a new 4GB SDHC card and so before using it i decided to format it. The format went fine but i noticed that windows 7 set the capacity down from 4gb to 2gb and i didnt check this since it had never done anything like this before.

Now i tried to reformat it by changing the size but that failed, i then booted inxp so i can try and use partition magic 8 which doesnt support usb drives. I could try gparted on my laptop but i am not in the mood to wait for my laptop to boot. Is there anything else i can do.

Before you suggest it, no i can not return this item

Im thinking you created a partition on your card. Try to delete the partition and reformat the device

Did you format it in Fat32 if so I believe there is a 2 gig limitation, try formatting in NTFS.
