I bought a 8GB sandisk MicroSD which i formatted using my cell phone.
After formatting the total memory size changed to 4GB.
And now even after formatting with PC and different softwares i cannot use the whole 8 gb.
Please help me to solve the issue.
Any help would be appreciated..

Use the SD formatter 3.0. It can be downloaded from the SD association's website.

http://www.sdcard.org/consumers/formatter_3/

Choose options, then change Size Adjustment to ON.

Navigate to the SD association's website. Download and install the latest version of the software. With your sd card inserting in your computer, launch the program and proceed to format the card.
