You reformatted the existing partition. So it is the same size as
the FAT32 partition. If you want to use the entire drive, you will
need to re-partition it. You will probably want to use gparted for
this. You have the choice of creating a second partition, expanding
the existing partition to use the full drive, or deleting the
current partition, and creating a new one.
