    Question ext3 Partition on microSD card

    First of all, not sure if this is in the right category...

    Now, my actual issue: I've got a 4GB PNY brand microSDHC card which I'm trying to put an ext3 partition on, but GParted and mkfs.ext3 keep giving me errors. In fact, the card -- for what reason, I'm not sure -- will not let me create a Linux partition of any type (ext2,ext3,ext4). However, it does let my create FAT16 and FAT32 partitions on it.

    The card is being read via the microSD to SD card adapter that it came with, and that in turn is being put into my laptop's in-built 3-in-1 card reader.

    If it makes any difference, the laptop's card reader is supposed to supprt SD cards, xD cards, and Sony Memory Sticks, but will only read SD cards within Ubuntu, and fails to work in Windows 7, both issues most likely down to a lack of drivers.

    Finally, the log that GParted gave me upon the error is attached to this post, along with the output mkfs.ext3 gives upon execution. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
