  1. Hi,

    I have a 4gb Kingston USB stick but when I plug it into windows, it only shows up as 2GB. Under disk management, I can see the remaining 2GB but can't format or delete it. I can only format/delete the first 2GB. What can I do to be able to use all 4GB? I'm running Windows 7 ultimate of that makes any difference.

    Right now the portion that works is set for NTFS. I can't do anything with the other portion, I'll try to use your tool when I get home

    Had the same problem for no obvious reason. Have used this SD card over and over and this happened all of the sudden. The HP utility worked perfectly! Hope other people find this thread useful. Thanks tipstir!
