I have a 1 GB memory card which had been set as primary partition. How do I change it to a logical partition?

I have already tried to

  • Delete the contents with Fedora Linux.
  • Used Paragon Partition Manager 10 to delete the contents and tried to change it to a logical partition.

But it failed.

Answers

Create an extended partition to contain the logical partition first.
