I recently bought a Sandisk 2GB SD card. It worked fine in my i-mate JAM but
I then decided to try it in my digial camera. Don't ask me why but I decided
to format the card in my digital camera.

definitely see that it has formatted the card with a single volume and left
an unformatted volume.

Question: how in effs name do I remove the volume so I can reformat my card

Can anyone here help?????
