For the formatting issue: Use Ctrl+T to call a terminal, type df (with the SD card inserted!) and paste the output here. It's probably /dev/sdaN ("N" being some number) - or maybe "sdb", that's what we've got to find out first.

After that, it'd be pretty helpful to get a pointer as to which fix you mean - URL?
