SD card formatting problems

Specs: Win XP Pro, Celeron 1.4 512mb
Hey,
For some reason I have been having SD card formatting problems. I bought a 2GB card, but Windows will only see it as a 980MB card. However, I plugged it into my Canon, which then saw it as a 979MB card, however after a format showed it as 19.GB.
I thought my problem was solved, but Windows STILL sees it as a 980MB volume.
I'm using the SD card reader built into my Gateway. Would updating the drivers for the SD3 device help? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.


I wish my lawn was emo so it would cut itself.

My problem is that Windows sees it as a 980MB card no matter what. I've tried formatting it as FAT and FAT32, but no luck.
