I recently bought an exercise bike that has a nice iFit feature. This will let me plug an SD card in and that will control the workout. I bought a blank 8 GB SD card and then purchased a download from the ifit.com website (URL included in case you need to find anything there to help me). After purchasing the download I found out that the SD card cannot be bigger than 1 GB. Is it possible to format or partition my 8 GB card such that the bike will be able to read it?

I don't think that it is the size of the partition which is the issue:

wiki SD memory card

It defined higher-capacity cards, some with faster speeds and added capabilities: SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) and SDXC (Secure Digital eXtended Capacity). These cards redefine the interface so that they cannot be used in older host devices.


The SDSC card goes up to 2Gb, which means that your 8Gb card is not a SDSC, but most likely a SDHC.

This means you might want to get a cheap 1Gb card, perhaps someone will give you one.

I will try your suggestion Wolfeymole, but I'm afraid that Kemasa is probably right. I'm just not sure where I can find a 1 GB card, I don't even know who I could ask, but thanks for the help.

Ebay is one option. The prices seem pretty low. Some auctions did not sell at $1 with free shipping.

Oh, thanks, I will check ebay and Amazon since I have a gift card there.
