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

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.
