    This is driving me mad!

    I have a Sandisk 4GB microSD card which came with my CycloDS. However, when I place it in the Transflash silver card reader and place into my PC, the properties option shows that it is only a 1GB card! The printing on the actual microSD card says 4GB.

    I have tried to put over 1GB worth of data on there and it says that it's full.

    What is the issue here!!

    Where did you buy the card from? And has it ever read as 4GB?

    Possibly a fake microSD?

    It might be fake. Try another reader/computer. What brand is the MicroSD?

    It's a SanDisk...
    I'm going to try and locate another card reader today to double check.
