Great resolution to the problem. Now here’s the icing on the cake.
If you reformat your flash memory card you will lose all the files that are already on it.
Instead of the “reformat command try using the “convert” command. Go to the START menu; select ALL PROGRAMS; Select ACCESSORIES, then the COMMAND PROMPT.
In the Command Prompt window type “convert D: /fs:ntfs” (without the quotation marks, of course) using whatever drive designator is appropriate. (I used “D” as an example.) Note that there is a space between “convert” and the drive designator, another between the colon and the slash.
This converts the card file system from FAT32, which is how most flash memory cards come formatted, to NTFS, and will allow recording more than 4gb blocks of data. And it should do this without erasing your data.
