Hm, this is strange. We are currently working with Compact Flash cards
with about 2GByte of capacity, and there are no such problems. We are
also formatting them with msdos_format().
There MIGHT be a problem with the ramdisk driver.
Normally you would not want to use a MSDOS-based ramdisk in RTEMS,
because you can also use the "IMFS" (in-memory-file system) which uses
the heap to get the memory it needs.
The ramdisk driver was a test vehicle to implement the DOS filesystem
and, AFAIK, was not/seldomly used with the capacity you mentioned.
Can you see "/dev/ramdisk0" in the device tree of the (in memory) file
