Windows cannot read my 8GB MemoryStick M2 card

I tried inserting a M2 card I was using in my old phone into the memory stick reader on my Windows XP PC (using a M2 to MemoryStick adapter). But the drive comes up as unformatted, and the formatter only offers to format it as 4GB FAT32.

"It can depend on how old the Memory stick reader is on your pc.

I have one of the first Sony laptops that included a Memory stick reader and if I put in anything bigger than 4GB's (or it could be 2GB's... I haven't used it in about 10+ years!) I get the same as you. It simply asks to format and you do not get the full size."
