SanDisk 8GB microSDHC format error : reads now as 3.6GB card ::
I bought a brand new SanDisk 8GB microSDHC card from Staples this weekend , to upgrade a SanDisk 2 GB microSD card that is already in my Black Berry Peril 8100 cell phone.
When we first installed the 8gb card into the phone, the phone reconized it as a 7.6 gig memory card.
BUT when we hooked the phone up to the computer with a USB cord, the computer kept saying "Would you like to format the disk ‘’?
We looked around on the phone for some options (Options, Advance Options, Media Card ) and found the phone ‘initilize media card option’. We selected that.
And sure as sh**…the phone reformated the 8gig card to now show 3.6 gig. card.
My computer is Windows XP with service pack 3. AMD Althon Dual core 4800+ , 3 gigs of ram. Very newer motherboard.
So…whats up with the 8 gig card being seen only as 3.6 ?
