I'm assuming you use Windows.

Goto the Disk Management and delete all partitions from the Flash Drive (for help see here: How to use Disk Management to configure basic disks in Windows XP That's for Windows XP and is pretty much the same for other versions).

Be very careful that you are deleting partitions off your Flash drive and NOT your hard disk.

Once you are done with that, the drive would have unpartitioned and unformatted space. Just right click and create one (or more) partitions(s) as per your wish. You should be able to see the whole of 8GB then.
