    I formatted my 4GB SD card for use with my Wii with the panasonic SD formatter, I previously formatted a 1GB card so the "988MB" setting was still there, not realising i formatted my 4GB card down to 1GB, nothing i have tried recognises the remaining 3 gig, i have use Ubuntu linux Gparted to see the format, no dice, Windows disk management, no avail. Any ideas how I can get my 4GB card back?

    It could be that you have a bad card.
    The connections between the chips inside SD cards can break when bent, causing them to only show a half, or a quarter of the actual capacity.

    Not sure why you would use a special formatter. The standard formatter works just fine with SD cards.
