Hi, I have a 32GB Extreme but only 8 gb is showing as usable. In Disk Mgt in xp and win7Pro64, 22G is showing as unallocated. There is no options to delete the partitions to reclaim the entire 32G. How do I get access to all 32G?

some host devices will reformat the card to 8GB. this is common with older canon cameras. did you format the card in a camera? if so i would suggest not formatting the card in that device again and check the manufacturers website to see if a firmware update is available. if not only use the computer to format the card.
to regain the space do a google search for HP disk storage format tool. download that tool and use it to reformat the card.

Your statements about it being formated in an older Canon camera were correct. I just downloaded the utility from download.cnet.com Dr, thank you for taking the time to answer my question.
