wrtiitin in disk imager 32 error/

I am running disk imager 32 on a windows 7 computer. If I save an image form my sd card I can write it out only to the same sd card. Or I get an error Not enough room on card? Even thought they are both 8 gig cards. I understand this is because the cards are slightly referent sizes. Is a work around for this?
Thank you

When you read an image from the card, it will read the entire card, even if the partitions created were, in fact, originally smaller. So the work around is to truncate the image you read to the actual formatted area before trying to write to another card. If the formatted area is the whole card you are stuffed.
