Another SD card format question...

  mooly 17:25 06 Oct 2010

A 1gb SD card from Max Spielman, actually a micro SD in adapter, but anyway can anyone explain this please.

Formatting again... if I format in the laptop using "full format" and "restore defaults", at the end of the format it seems to pause as the progress bar reaches 100% then after about 10 seconds the format complete message appears.
If I look at the card properties 973 out of 974mb are available... with 976kb shown and reported as used. Nothing shows in windows explorer if I look.

If I "quick format" in the laptop all the space is free with zero bytes used. Reformat again using "full" and the 976kb shows as used again.

What's going on ? No other card does this.
