Help on a bizarre issue... 4 partitions on a 4 gig chip?
OK, I'm looking at doing a froyo chip for a second nook... and I had this 4 gig class 4 laying around...
So I start the process, including formatting said chip, only to discover that somehow... it has FOUR partitions on it and the only one I can access has 117 meg.
It's nothing special... a SanDisk that I think I might have had in a BlackBerry... but my pre-droid days are kind of electronically hazy... as in one day with a D1 and my Storm became a doorstop.
I looked all over and couldn't find a way to get rid of the partitions on the chip. I tried partition magic... and "computer manager" but while it saw the chip, it wouldn't let me delete or expand the partition.
I'm running Windows 7 on my PC. Any ideas would be appreciated!☆ ★ | ROM | [JellyBean][4.3] BeanStalk Build 4.3.1001 - [04 OCT] |★ ☆

No... I'm able to write the image. But there's very little room left over because the only partition I can access is 117 meg.
That's why I'm asking if there's a way to wipe the partitions... so I can use the whole card/chip.☆ ★ | ROM | [JellyBean][4.3] BeanStalk Build 4.3.1001 - [04 OCT] |★ ☆

By default, the image burning software creates a small SDCard image. You can expand the sdcard partition using EASEUS partition manager, do a search on this board.
Secondly, you can't directly access the fourth partition via the PC usb, you'll have to do it via the nook itself. One way is using a tool call browsix.

If you just want to claim the additional for use by your current nookie install, you need to use EASEUS partition manager to extend the partition size of the sdcard. You'll have to do this in either case, an image write doesn't allocate the extra space.
