I put WP 7 on my HD2 and it was working fine but I decided to go back to Android. I then took my 16 GB Sandisk card out and put it in the memory card reader but it only shows the partition of 200 MB.

I even download a program to format/partition the microSD card but I still could not get it to get back most of the available space in my 16 GB card. It keeps showing 200 MB on my computer and I tried to get rid of the partitioning but I still cannot do it.

Is there a solution to this?

Try

http://www.sdcard.org/consumers/formatter/eula/

If that doesn't fix it, it may be borked completely.. though some people have had success with the Nokia phone formatting tools

Easy,
Put your SD Card in your PHone
POwer off you phone
During Boot hold power off/on button on phone to access the MAGDLR Menu
Connect you Phone to PC
Choose MASSSTORAGE in MAGDRL Option number 4
Format your SD CARD over PC
Power off Phone - Job done!

I don't know why everybody thinks you have to put the card into something else. Enter MAGLDR, go to USB, connect it to the computer, run SD Formatter,Select correct drive, Options - Format Type= Full Erase On -Format Size Adjustment =ON.


This has been covered many times since the introduction of WP7. Using the search term 200mb in this section. I came up with plenty of answers to your problem.
