Dear lord...you know you can't actually delete it with the disk manager? RRAG!

Did you use chkdsk? And if that still doesn't work, ffin degauss that thing.

I'm not a fanboy noobie, I know the psp has its faults such as widescreen display for emus, dead pixels, heaviness, durability, and gaming but it nonetheless gets everything done. The GP2x handles everything also so they are both great systems in their own rights. If anything, i'm a Sega fanboy which is why my ps2 is catching dust and I play my Dc for 2 hours a day, though i'm still looking for my genesis and 32x addon =\

anyways, lintsniffer, what program is that that you captured, i am having the same troubles with my 2gig stick

Why is there a delete option if you can't delete
and
how do I delete it?

Inferno: press the Print Scrn key at the top of your keyboard above the arrow keys. Ctrl+v in MS paint.
Assuming you use windows.

How did you manage to get more than one partition in the first place? I don't remember encountering that problem, probably because I didn't care to look there... Just on a whim...try a 3rd party partitioner or some fdisk thingy...

@Pokeparadox...your just forcing me to put sarcasm tags on my posts, aren't you.

I formatted with my GP2X as a card reader so it only saw 1 gig and formatted 1 gig. When I used a card reader that could see the full 4 gigs, it saw the formatted and unformatted parts as seperate partitions.

I don't think FDisk will work, but he could try it. Flash memory doens't have a bootsector.
There's nothing stopping a peice of flash memory from having a bootsector. Furthermore, fdisk is for editing all kinds of properties of storage disks, including partitioning (at least on linux ;))

Like most everyone else says, get a new card reader. I had got a 4GB ADATA card off eBay and my card reader was saying 1GB. I was trippin' because it recognized my 2GB just fine. I was cussin' this guy out good, too. Come to find out, when I finally bought a new card reader, it recognized my 4GB card even though I had quick formatted it as a 1GB on the old reader. So yeah, it's most likely the reader. B)

Hold on. Before you do that, try this:

To extend a basic volume
Open Command Prompt.
Type:
diskpart

At the DISKPART prompt, type:
list volume

Make note of the number of the basic volume you want to extend.

At the DISKPART prompt, type:
select volume n

Selects the basic volume, n, you want to extend into contiguous, empty space on the same disk.

At the DISKPART prompt, type:
extend [size=n]

Extends the selected volume by size=n megabytes (MB).

Value Description
list volume Displays a list of basic and dynamic volumes on all disks.
select volume Selects the specified volume, where n is the volume number, and shifts the focus to it. If no volume is specified, the select command lists the current volume with focus. You can specify the volume by number, drive letter, or mount point path. On a basic disk, selecting a volume also gives the corresponding partition focus.
extend Extends the volume with focus into next contiguous unallocated space. For basic volumes, the unallocated space must be on the same disk as, and must follow (be of higher sector offset than) the partition with focus. A dynamic simple or spanned volume can be extended to any empty space on any dynamic disk. Using this command, you can extend an existing volume into newly created space.
If the partition was previously formatted with the NTFS file system, the file system is automatically extended to occupy the larger partition. No data loss occurs. If the partition was previously formatted with any file system format other than NTFS, the command fails with no change to the partition.

You cannot extend the current system or boot partitions.

size=n The amount of space, in megabytes (MB), to add to the current partition. If you do not specify a size, the disk is extended to take up all of the next contiguous unallocated space.

Notes

To open a command prompt, click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command Prompt.
You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group in order to complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings might also prevent you from completing this procedure.
To extend a basic volume, it must be formatted with the NTFS file system.
You can only extend a basic volume onto the same disk.
You can only extend a basic volume if it is followed by contiguous unallocated space.

quit saying to get a new cardreader. I can see it, I just need to delete the 1gb partition so I can fully partition the entire thing.
I'm going to try the things that you suggested, thanks.
