I tried plugging it into my usb port on my computer. Windows 7 reports it as being a 1.92 gb drive.
In the bios it is reporting the size as 4 gigs. It's very odd reporting 2 different sizes. Though if it has 2 seperate partitions on in maybe thats the reason?
When i plug in my xp installation thats on my usb stick, that reports it as 4 gigs. It wont let me install anything though.
I may have missed something somewhere.

Windows will see only the partition size. You'd have to go into the Disk Manager to see the full size. The BIOS should name it as a RunCore disk, though. It does sound as if there is a problem and I'm sure MDD will do right by you.

Fortunately, I fixed the problem with a firmware update/reinstallation.
In my case a Transcend TS32GSSD25S-M.
I downloaded the firmware from Transcend Download Center Welcome to Transcend Website
Made a bootable msdos usb drive and followed the instructions.
My was disk recovered and as new.
Hope it helps.

Just an update to this. It's not far off a year and I still haven't received a refund despite being told in August that UPS had approved the claim.
I've not come on here to have a good old moan about mydigitaldiscount. All I want is for my money from UPS to be refunded. I can't see a problem with this. I've had to make alternative arrangements to get another disk seeing as I've waited so long for this matter to be sorted which is why I would prefer the refund. Though at the end of the day as long as I either get a refund or the drive then I'm happy and I can move on with my life.
I know a lot of people on here rate mydigitaldiscount so I'm not sure why I'm having so much trouble with something that should be easy to resolve.
