While using dd on my USB drive, the USB drive accidentally got unplugged. The max capacity is 8GB, and 5GB had been written to it.

Now, when I try to reformat the USB drive or even remove all partitions and remake them (via fdisk), I see that all new partitions are being created with a maximum capacity of 3GB.

Is there something I can do to fix this? Simply removing all partitions seems to be Google's advice, but that is something I have done already.
