you get full access to the G1 .. install different ROMs .. move apps2SD to clear space .. have virtually limitless space instead of 74M only .. you can pretty much do anything to the phone with root access .. i have 110+ apps

62M /app
8M /app-private
24M /dalvik-cache

that alone puts me pretty high .. then i have /data on the phone that takes up another big chunk

there seems to be a lack of information .. i tend to not make bum whenever possible .. so i cannot bum that you are following the same steps i would take to format .. are you formatting with two partitions? one partition? are you using a card reader? can you verify the card in the computer management section of vista? are you using a third party software? have you tried formatting thru the phone? have you considered using linux? (note: linux is really the better way to create two partitions to perform apps2SD)
