Expanding database device in SQL 6.5

typically, each database device will house one database.  I administer a database which has a database device which houses 4 databases.  Each database is allocated a specified amount of the "container".  One of the databases is down to only having 12MB of space left, so I need to expand the database device and allocate the space to the database.  Seems pretty straight forward, but when I try to expand the database device by 500MB, it appears to happen normally (no error messages, etc.).  After that, I go to expand the database and the database device did not expand.  Any help in how to proceed would be greatly appreciated!!

Try using backspace to take out the current size (in edit database device) and then type in the new size.  This usually works for me.
