After reformatting, the SD card capacity was reading correctly (it wasn't before), and now I have a fresh install of Froyo with no damaged SD card message.
I hope this helps.
It worked flawlessly! After switching the SD Card as external mass storage, I reformatted the SD Card within Window 7, FAT32, without any external tool.
I think the magic trick consist on setting up the SD Card as external mass storage, I never switched back to ActiveSync Mode and Froyo is running, albeit with some SOD.
So thank you very much!
