Need help....Formatting 8GB SD Card Tags: Flash Media SD Card Formatting Storage Last response: May 7, 2008 4:58 AM in Storage Share zadrian May 5, 2008 2:16:30 PM Sorry if this might sound stupid.... I was trying to use Ghost to create an image of my new notebook onto a 8GB SDHC card. Ghost created a boot drive automatically onto the SD card with PC-DOS and the ghost.exe. However I realise that the drive became only 2GB (1.9GB) and there is no way for me to activate the remaining 5gb even in Windows. I used windows XP disk management but cannot "unpartition" the 2GB or allocate the 5GB.. Is there a way to revert back to an 8GB disk ? Please advise... Thanks More about : formatting 8gb card aziraphale May 5, 2008 2:27:29 PM Usually you should use the manufacturer-tool to format these cards. I heard of people losing their card after they formated with windows. rockchalk May 7, 2008 4:58:11 AM You might try using SeaTools (from Seagate). There's an advanced feature to set the capacity of a drive-- you likely can reset the capacity back to the original 8GB. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
