If you look around, there seem to be quite a few people having this problem, with no known solution, either from other members or SanDisk themselves.

 

The only thing you can do is return it.

I am stuck with the same problem. My Micro SD threw up on me , when  one slightly "fat" sized MicroSD adapter, go stuck in a built in Laptop SD card reader and I had to use clippers to get it out. The adatper  had scratches on it but the microsd should have worked. Now it shows 8mb instead of 4gb

There has to be some BLOCK level formatting utility that wipes clean the data.

How about Fdisk in linux or gtparted. Could someone post their exp with those.

THanks

This may help anyone who has a simular problem with an SD memory card shoing the wrong size. Use the SD formatter 3.0.  It can be downloaded from the SD association's website.

Choose options, then change Size Adjustment to ON.

 

Format your SD card:

Refresh:

 

Your SD card should now show the correct size
