2GB micro card reduced to 20MB

A 2GB micro card came with my camera, and when I erased all my photos off of it so I could take new ones, it says the memory has been reduced by 20MB.

How can I fix this?

There is no firmware on a memory card. It is simple a blank storage area. If a card will not format, it has likely failed and you would need to get a new one.
