Question Removing image from SD card

Are there instructions to do this after you've rooted so you can reclaim more than the 40 MB a quick format recovers?

Just format the card in your NC. That should fix the partition table to restore the full capacity.

Device: NookColor.........rooted
I didn't remove the partition from my card that I used to root.....so I only have 40mb of space....it's a 1GB card....It's currently in my NC, and has overdrive stuff loaded, among other things that appear to be NC related....

I might be able to figure out how to remove the partition....the problem is the card already has my Overdrive stuff on it (and the library download without the USB is working)
How can I get the overdrive stuff off the card (and other files that apper to be NC related) and onto my NC, so I can fix the card.....Ideally I don't want to have to set up the overdrive thing again, since I finally got it working....

I'm thinking of buying a larger uSD card specific for the nook to install....and put my 1GB card back in my phone for my music files.

1) Will I have to (Can I) move the files on the card somewhere (if so how, where and specifically which files)? withoug losing functionality on my NC
2) Can I just move the overdrive files to my NC harddrive, without losing functionallity?
3) After moving the overdrive files, and installing my new card, could I just move the overdrive files onto the new card without losing functionality?

I'm sure I have more questions on the topic.....not to mention questions about backing up all the apps and files I currently have on my NC....

Can you see the content of the card (folders, files) using a computer?

I recommend using this free program to format your sd cards. It works great and actually makes fixes common errors. I used it right after I rooted and it worked perfectly.

So I see the files, If I just copy all the them to my computer somewhere, reformat the usd in my NC, (to eliminate the partition) can I just copy the files (all the them) back onto either the same card or my new card, and will everything work?

I will also recommend just formatting the SD card in the Nook Color itself, it makes life simple.

TJ, I don't know exactly what Overdrive installs on the SDcard, but if you do choose to copy all the info back to your PC, it may be worth making sure that your PC is showing hidden files in directory structure. I've noticed some other apps like to store hidden items, such as thumbnail structure files and such ...

Can I just move the files to a folder in the NC? and my overdrive will continue working, or does it require the information to be on a card?

Looks like even some kindle books are on the card....

Yeah, that would certainly be a problem. A cheap SD card can be had for less than 20 bucks locally I would imagine. If the data integrity of your Overdrive stuff is worth more than 20 bucks to you, just go grab another small cap. micro-SD card and test the moving of Overdrive data prior to reformatting.

yeah....I guess it would be more trouble to figure out how to re-associate the files to the correct directory.....

Guess I'll just try the copy to my computer, reformat card, and then re-install the files back on the card.....

Hope it works.....I figured out wireless download of books from library using OMC once....I guess I could do it again if needed....
