P2 Card Capacity Decrease

I exported content one night, and I unmounted my the P2 card before turning off my camera. The next day I turn on the camera, and it says 17 minuets capacity. When i went to delete the files, there were no files to be deleted. I formatted the drive in my Panasonic HVX200A. No luck. I plugged it into my computer, put it into USB connection mode, and used disk utility to format the drive. Still no luck. Any thoughts?
Thanks- Adrian Sun

[Adrian Sun] "used disk utility to format the drive"
What do you mean by that, these cards should only be formatted by the camera or Panasonic Format App.

Also what size card do you have and what record setting are you using. That is what a 16GB card would have for anything HD other than 720p@24pN.

I have a 16 gb card. I was filming 720p @ 24 pn. It used to have 40 minuets of recording but now it only has 17 min of recording.

Have you formatted the card in the camera, not just erased the clips, your wording is a bit vague.

Sound like you are at 720p24, not 720pN24. Big difference.
