yea i had this problem it's an issue with the adapter i think. but i fixed mine, and got it to show my full 16 gigs. i plugged it into a phone while it was on then rebooted the phone and then took it out and put it back into my computer and made sure the mini card was VERRY snug down in there and i flicked the lock mechaniaim a fiew times(not sure witch one of these things did the trick but one of em did) i'm using the scandisc tool now,
yeah...... i guess i shouldn't have tryed to format it with my stupid computer hahaha

maybee flickering the locker on the adapter did the trick.
it could have easily been pluging it back into the device. you CAN get it to show 16 once again tho

14. something GB is what will actually show for a 16GB card. it has to do with the "some capacity is used for formatting and other functions" you hard driver is the same for instance if you have a 80GB hard drive it will show as 72GB or something usable space

i bought a 16gb micro sd card one off ebay and it will let me store files on it but does not support some files my 2gb one supported, and as i try to format the memory card it also wont let me do that, what do u think the problem is.

As mentioned earlier in this thread (and many others), we've been hearing about a lot of fake/counterfeit cards being sold on eBay recently. You should check the card out with h2testw and if it doesn't measure up file a claim immediately with either the seller or eBay's Resolution Center to get your money back.

Ok here is how i fixed the fake 32gb micro sd card that i got off of ebay... do a google search for... "hp drive key boot utility" (the name of the exe after extracted is "hpdkbu.exe"(i have windows 7 and the utility would not install on my system if this is the case for you as well just click extract instead of install and run the exe that i just mentioned) hopefully you have a usb adapter... plug in the adapter run the utility select the drive letter for your micro sd that is in the usb mine was "e"... click next... then select create new or replace (its already checked) hit next... select hard drive(its already checked) hit next... select create new file system(its already checked) hit next... then it says something at the bottom then says formatting...
here is the weird part of the tutorial the program stops responding... dont sweat it just end task it... now go to my computer and look at your properties for the drive(should say 0 free 0 used)... now right click on the drive and select format... you will notice now that the capacity has changed to what it should be just format it and you are all set good luck and hope this tutorial helped...

I guess that all depends on what the original size of the card was before they flashed it to 32gb mine happend to be 4 which came roughly to 3.24 with that stupid extra space required for the format so mainly I lost 28 gigs or i could just say i got a 4gb card for free however you want to look at it since i did get my money back for it anyhow...
