    Download EaseUs (it's free) and take a look at the card and see if there is unformatted space on it. If there is you can either create a new partition or stretch an existing one to fill the space.

    EaseUs is a 'live' partition manager...when you run it, and select the given drive, it will display all partitions, and allow 'on'the fly' partitioning. Read the Getting Started guide or help files for more info.
    Best FREE Partition Manager Freeware for Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 32 bit & 64 bit. EaseUS free Partition Manager Software Home Edition.

    I really appreciate the info very helpful. one more thing, when I look at the sd card partition for the android I can see the files but whe when I try to click and drag files from the pc to the easeus partition manager the mouse turns into a circle with a line through it telling me I cant do it. So what can I do to add files to the sd card partition

    Did you recover the unformatted space first?

    If you used the size agnostic method for cerating a bootable SD all of your space is still there it just can't be seen directly by the PC. The bootable ROM creates a partition which functions as a vitrual mSD card for the OS to use with all lefterover space. You can access it by booting into the SD card OS then either plugging the Nook into the PC via USB or by using an app like Samaba to wirelessly move the files between the Nook and PC.

    i believe i used winimage32 to format my micro sd card to run phiremod and honeycomb3.0 then i used easeus partition manager to take the space not being used and made it available. im not familiar with the agnostic method or maybe thats wahat i used.

    The size agnostic method simply creates a few partitions needed for boot, system, internal memory and whatever is left over is partitioned as an "SDcard." If you use an image scaled to a certain size (2GB or 4GB for example) on a card with a larger capacity than the image size (you can always choose an image smaller than you card but never larger) then you may be able to recover some unused space with a partition manager. It really depends on what you are trying to to and how you go about it.

    Connect your nook (with the card in it) to your pc and mount the drives (should show 2 drives) then you should be able to drag and drop with no trouble.

    When I do that it says it doesn't recognize my device. Format the sd card. I went and installed the latest adb and still no luck
