I have a Lexar 16gb CF card. Whenever I format it in my camera (a Canon Digital Rebel XT), it only recognizes 7.8 GB of storage. If I format it in my computer, in the computer it shows 15.6 GB, but only shows 14.7 in my camera. What is causing this reduction in storage space?
I already contacted Canon and Lexar, but they don't know what the problem is. My camera is supposed to be compatible with this size card.
I have tried two identical cards, and they both displayed the same problem right after the first formatting. When the brand new card was inserted, it displayed as 15.6 GB, but after the formatting, it was cut to 7.8.
