If you know Linux (like using Ubuntu), I find it's best to use the low level fdisk utility to format a microsd card larger than 2gb. You will have to put the card in a USB card reader and the reader should show up under Linux as /dev/sdb1, /dev/sdc1, or something like that. Then run fdisk on /dev/sdb (or /dev/sdc or whatever corresponds to the reader drive). Under fdisk you will have to delete the existing FAT32 partition and then recreate a new one (default to Linux) and then change the partition type to "c" (W95 FAT32 (LBA)). After saving and exiting fdisk, you will need to run mkfs.msdos /dev/sdb1 (or /dev/sdc1 or whatever) to format it. I have gotten a lot of successes on Android or other Linux-based systems (like my Logitech Revue media player) to work on large cards using this format method
