As title says , im unable to create the EXT4 partition on my SD Card. I have 2 SD Cards one 8GB class 2 , and other one 32GB class 10. Normally i use my 8GB class 2 card but I wanted to change it to the bigger one because the 8GB is not enough for me . I've 7GB Fat32 and 1GB EXT4 on it working perfectly , i partitioned it in the 4EXT recovery. Although , I wanted to change it with my other 32GB card. Everything seems to be perfect, i supposed to create the 1GB EXT4 again but... after partitioning i go to "info" it doesnt show me the EXT4 partition unfortunately ...just saying that my ext is not formatted , but i cant format it because i didnt create it on my 8GB SD Card it shows that i have the ext4 partition, but on the 32GB it doesnt... and the problem is i cant boot up any ROM with it could anyone help me with this? I really want to use the 32GB card but i cant for now

Hey Chromium Yeah so, I tried to partition the SD Card with Gparted but unfortunately , when I booted it up , I cant see my SD Card info.. Only the PC Partitions. Could the problem be that , my phone is in 4ext recovery?? I did turn on the Disk Drive from recoery but Gparted still cant see it. I tried several times "Search for devices" in Gparted but didnt help. Any idea bro? I never did it with the Gparted , i always partitioned my SD card by recovieres or Minitool Partition so im not used to it

Of course man ... But on the step that I should see the PC partitions along with the SD Card , There is no SD Card there are 3 ntfs partitions and the Unallocated Space one. I don't know what's the problem really
