    Hello,
    I have gparted my 4gb sd microsd class 2 card for my desire. I partitioned 1 gb ext3 and 3 gb fat32. I want to format ext3 to ext4 but i can not see the ext3 part with gparted program. I only can see the FAT32 part.
    Can you please help me with the topic. Thanks.

    Now, after some different trials, i can't see FAT32 part also. And the phone gives a anoticification like "sd card mounted read only" . I can't unmount it from SD&phone storage. Please help me, i am really bored with the device and such problems....

    Either use a card reader or connect your device in Recovery mode and mount as USB mass storage. Reboot the PC and and you should be able to see/create partitions.

    I'd suggest to use ext3 partition for the most compatibility.
    If you have a chance to get a faster card, then get it (min class 4). 4GB card doesn't provide enough space anyway.
