computer only shows 16MB partition of SD card

hey all,
I managed to partition and format my 8GB SD with wicks, chdk works on the S5IS and my intervalometer script does too. when i take pics i can see them on the camera, when i plug the sd into the computer it only pulls up a 16MB card (!) no pics. I found a work around (by the way the partitions are formatted FAT16 i believe) by using WICKS, switch partition, unplug and replug card and voila totally different card shows up with PHOTOS folder (I named it so when partitioning) and the pics. Now that's a pain in the neck.
Why can't i see both partitions of the SD card on the computer? the camera clearly knows it as it boots the program and saves pics correctly...
any help is appreciated!
Davd ;)

If you are using Windows,  you will have to talk to Microsoft about this.  As far as they are concerned,  SD cards can only have one partition.
