I flash my Gumstix image to NAND, and use the SD card slot only for storage.
I'm having trouble formatting an 8gb SD card on the Gumstix itself. I want to format the card w FAT32 so it's readable on a Windows machine.
After partitioning and formatting with mkfs.vfat, I end up with a 1GB card. I bitbaked the latest dosfsutils and put that on my Gumstix, and now mkfs.vfat produces a 2GB card, but still not 8GB.
If I format the card on a PC, either Linux or Windows, and put the card back in the Gumstix, it reads as 8GB. But I want to be able to partition and format cards directly on the Gumstix itself, for recovery purposes.
