Cutting 16GB microSDHC Class 4 down to an 8GB size

 Ok, here’s my challenge.  I have a Verizon Omnia II. I initially purchased a 2GB card for the device, and things worked ok.

As a typical American, I thought, “Hey, if 2 works ok, 16 should be great!”.

So, after having found a great deal on a SanDisk 16gb card, I bought and installed it.  Initially, it worked.  In fact, it still does.

What I didn’t count on was a work related program that could not “see” a 16GB card - 8GB was the largest the code could access, so during installation on the phone, the program reported a disk size of 0.

So, now the question is this: do I have to ditch my 16GB card and buy a 8GB card, or, is there a way to format the card to appear like a 8GB card?

Actually, I have additional questions: 1) if there is a way, what is it?  and 2)  what about a 16GB card would make it unaccessible?

you could try using a program like partition magic to shrik the partition.

its likely that the application can only allocate 8GB worth of data. this is completly a programming issue wuith the application. whoever did the programing simply did not take the time to future proof it with the ability to use high capacity cards.
