You could have a problem with the sdcard. Have you tried getting a replacement or inserting another brand sd card to see if that allows you to use the full storage capacity in Fat32?

Just another note, make sure you are formating the entire card to Fat32 and not creating a 4GB partition that is Fat32.

Have you tried to format it from the phone itself?

Yes when i Format it with the phone himself ... he format it with SYstem Fat.32 .. So I CAnt work with the full capacity 8gb this us the probl?m
I'm thinking that the device is creating a partition with 4GB of Fat32 storage. You might want to format from a computer and make sure the card is being formatted entirely and not being partitioned with 4GB of memory.

I was able to format a 64 GB microSD card in FAT32 to use all 64 GB of space. So just because it's FAT32 doesn't mean it should reduce the usable space of the card.

But we All Know The System Fat32 Can Not work with more Than 4gb .. I know you can format with huge capacity but you can work with small capacity -4gb
This IS Global Fact . Google It

4 GB is the file size limit for FAT32, not the total card capacity limit--I was referring to the total card capacity in my previous post.

oh Sorry I was wrong .. The fat32system can have more than 4gb file .. but he can not have one file with more than 4gb file .. he can have files 2gb and another 3gb so he is 5gb but he can not have one file 5gb impossible and this is my probl?m

If your phone can only use FAT32 on its SD cards, then you'll probably have to live with the 4 GB file size limitation.
