Hi list,

I initially used my phone to format a 2Gb MicroSD card and it appeared
to have 2Gb of capacity when mounted in my Gnome desktop environment.

However, I soon noticed that I was mysteriously losing data and my
kern.log was full of messages warning me of 'attempts to access beyond
end of device'.

I decided to format it with the one true disk partitioner and have done
so successfully but the capacity of the card now appears to be
approximately half what it was before.

 $ parted /dev/sdc print
 Disk /dev/sdc: 1016MB
 Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
 Partition Table: msdos

 Number  Start   End     Size    Type     File system  Flags
  1      10.2kB  1016MB  1016MB  primary  fat16        lba  

Any hints/tips/pointers much appreciated.
