You will surely have to partition the 8GB card.

Connect the SCSI2SD to the USB port first then fire up the utility (either 32bit or 64 bit if using Windows - you must know this first).

Device Type: (I'm not sure here if you're using other that a computer) - I'm using "Hard Drive".

Default "Sector Size" in (bytes) should be left at 512. Your 8GB card should read a default "Sector Count" total of around 16,000,000+ bytes. Divide the Sector Count (actual) in half, or, 8,000,000+ (don't use commas) - that will give a 1st partition of 4GB. Set the "Device Size" to 4GB.

Now, "Save to Device".

If I remember correctly, I had to then click "Load from Device to see the change.

That should give you a 4GB partition. :)
 
 As far as a second partition? Beats me.... I'm using mine in a 68K MAC LC III. I can't figure it out. LOL

**Based on my own info here.... I got to thinking and checked my SCSI2SD config and found a glaring error on my part - fixed it - and now have 2 partitions on my 4GB SD card! YEAH!

yea that's perfect.  i don't care about the other 4gb of space.. it's more than enough for this.  So yea sounds like the tool itself will help me configure the sd card for smooth formatting.  waiting for it to arrive in the mail.  going to leave the original one alone and let the new one be my test subject before i risk

ok last question.. maybe.. lol..    is there an easy way to duplicate an sd card?   basically i'm making this 2nd SD HD a backup of the other.. for redundancy..

i would like to duplicate the data, but the format the data is in is some custom format used by Peavey.  it's not Fat32 or what have you..

my basic plan was simply to manually load each (around 250) patches one at a time and save them to the other drive but this will take at least an hour to do.. probably 2..  

so just wondering if there is some way to 1:1 duplicate the card regardless of the format.. because i know there are no tools out there to deal with Peavey's disk format and i don't know what info i'd need to find

i imagine i could put the sd card into my computer and see what it sees.. but i won't know that for a few more days.

As far as formatting for what you're using it for... I have no idea - sorry. The SCSI2SD utility does not have a formatting capability AFAIK. :(
Yea, maybe try using your PC. Maybe someone else here can chime in?
