Hi everyone. I bought a 2 gb Dane elec SD card and now that I have formatted it, it appears to only have 1 gb capacity when I click on its properties. Has anyone else had such a problem, and if so, how do I format my card to its full 2 gb capacity?
yes right click on the drive in my computer. Then click on format.
In the screen see what it says is the capacity of the drive. If it says it is 1gb then you didnt get a 2gb card and it is either wrongly labeled or has a problem. If it says 2gb format it to fat32 if it is for use in a camera or NTFS if you just store data on it. Dont adjust anything else as the preset settings other than NTFS and FAT setting.
When I first used the card, which was about a month ago, it said there was 2 gb when I clicked on properties. It now says 1 gb (just a bit less), so it definately was a 2 gb to begin with. I have only tried formatting it about 2 times.
Basically corrupted memory. Just a thought,have you tried moving the security switch on the side of the sd card and format,if its locked ...you should not be allowed to format anyway...wild guess now if the card is not corrupted.
