    marajuu,
    If your phone doesn't remove the ext partition from your SDcard, you will have to remove it manually. If you have linux(live CD or installed version) install GParted( sudo apt-get install gparted ), search for your SDcard and you will see the 2 partitions. Delete both(make backup before), create a FAT32 partition and copy your backuped data back. That's it

    I think there is a option in recovery to delete sd partition,, check that!!
    formatting the sd just removes the files. it doesn't merge the partitions!!

    I had the same problem but found a simpler workaround. Settings>SD card and phone storage>Unmount SD card. Once the SD card is unmounted, select Format SD Card. This will format and merge all partitions into a single FAT32 partition.

    YOU WILL LOSE ALL DATA so back up everything that you need. This worked out easier for me since I had just partitioned the card to EXT and FAT32 and didn't have any data in it.
