Fat32 should be correct for your system, not sure why you are only seeing 2 gigs. When you ran fdisk to check drive what did it say for percent of drive used.

Here is a good page with instructions for fdisk and formatting, read through it, see if you notice where you made a mistake

Did you try using the installation program that came with the drive, alot of these programs will overcome system problems with overlays to allow the whole drive to be seen if the bios of the computer can't recognize the entire drive size.
