Right, since there isn't any unpartitioned space I think there is an issue with the card :-(

It's obviously acting strange so i'd discuss with teh seller and get a replacement... Incidently, was it shipped from china or something?

This is the seller:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/SANDISK-8GB-MICRO-SDHC-MEMORY-MOBILE-PHONES-/220806751970?_trksid=p5197.m7&_trkparms=algo%3DLVI%26itu%3DUCI%26otn%3D3%26po%3DLVI%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D1402825070993610262

I bought a 32gb micro sd from a 100% feedback ebay seller in the uk, was sceptical so ran h2testw 1.4, turned out it was 2Gb.

Speak to the Ebayer, if you get no joy within 48hrs open a dispute with Ebay. Ebay will side with the buyer 99% of the time, in flash drives it's probably 99.9%.

If you open a dispute and the seller says, yeah i'll send a refund when you send it back, oh I need your phone number, date of birth, can't recieve your emails etc etc, delaying tactics basically, then escalate the claim immediately. Either way be sure to escalate it within 20 days of opening.

In my case the seller claimed look at my feed back, no one else has complained, but then I guess most people don't get a card and try to write over 4Gb to it straight out the packet, they wouldn't realise until it's too late, since you can write info to a fake card, or at least the titles, but you can't read it back.

Send it back, don't buy flash media from Ebay.

Yea lesson learned, just saw the price, then looked at feedback and and seemed like a good buy, still if I dont get a refund it's only £6 odd thank god, some people spend a load on a fake 32gb card you must have been gutted:(.

I guess your right though, most people just stick it in there phone etc and never actually check until one day it's full or gone wrong.

I't more than likely a Chinese counterfeit so much so that even the seller doesn't know. i had Chinese 16gb micro sdhc for the longest time for i took it out and put it back in the phone with out shutting it off, it got hot then the paint and logo peeled off of it ans flaked away.

Its most likely a 4GB SD Card that has been reflashed to look like 8GB.
There is software to test for this, but I can't remember what its called.
You could try writing 5GB of data to it, and then try reading it all back and seeing if all of it is still there.
Tip: Don't buy sdcards or any flash media of eBay.
