Resize a Partition on a Flash Card... Possible?

Hi

I have a 2gig sd flash card I want to use with an mp3 player.
The player uses FAT16 so there is a 2gig limit and I think it combines the 128mb internal when it reads the filing system and crashes at "detecting card".

It works fine on 1 gig plugin external cards.

Does anyone know it I can resize the 2gig partioion to say 1.8gig. I have looked everywhere and failed so far.

many thanks

You can do it with things like Partion magic Acronis etc but it would cost a lot for such a simple job. You could try the free one from

http://partitionlogic.org.uk/

But for the size I would just copy everything off and delete the partition and start again

Not all 2GB flash cards are compatible with earlier equipment so it may be this that is stopping it working, not the size of the file system on ot.

Does your MP3 player specifically mention support for 2GB flash memory cards? If not then compatibility may be the cause.
