Nope, not without losing everything that's on the card, and it's pretty uncomfy (UNIX commands in terminal)...

It's a long hawl :(

You'd need to unmount the card in Android, go to a terminal, using "fdisk" command, remove he existing partitions and create the new ones, format them using mkfs.vfat (or sth similar) and mkswap...

Do you really feel comfortable doing this ??

Honestly, I'd just use a PC...
