    this is happening on HTC Desire

    perfectly OK 32GB disk ( been running on my old smatphone for 15 months) and put in Desire and it showed only 16GB. Reformatted disk and still only 16GB

    according to HTC docs, the Desire supports 32GB

    any thoughts guys ?

    Actually, just a thought, but the desire struggles to format 32GB cards as that is the maximum you can format FAT32. It may be worth formatting it via windows to Fat32
