So just to confirm; you removed the SD card from the device, connected it to a PC and reformatted it?

Why?

I haven't seen an IMG for this device, probably because it's still new. You've also voided your warranty, so if there was something else wrong with the device, that option flew out the window.

I was trying to repartition the storage in order to free up the 8gb that are not used. Instead, i deleted everything from the SD

You should have set the write protect tab, made an image and then gotten another SD card to write the image to.

Looks like the only solution you have is to do the above with a Nia that you'll have to purchase.

Maybe someone that already bought one could help me...

@aylesim: Sorry, I haven't seen an image created for a Nia yet. Hopefully someone who has a Nia will be willing to create an image for you.

And for the record, there is a method to expand the books partition to the full size of the card that is safe and can be done without taking the card out of the device.

For now, you'll have to buy a new Nia to fix your existing Nia.

Then you'll be waiting a rather long time. Unless the price is lower enough then the Clara HD ($20 is not lower enough), I cannot see it selling all that well against the Clara HD. Also, someone has to be willing to open the case and clone the card. So you need two things to happen that are not likely to happen any time soon.

What is the method for expanding the storage space on the SD card?
