Disk utility fails to resize portable drive partitions with error message "requested change in size is too small".

I am using a 1TB WD studio passport portable drive with my 2011 MacBook Pro. I have the portable drive partitioned into 4 volumes: 355 GB, 320 GB, 320 GB, & 4 GB.  But Disk Utility won't allow me to split the third of those into 160 GB /160 GB.  All volumes verify as seeming "to be okay".  Seems if Disk Utility could create me a 4GB partition that 160 GB is plenty big enough, right?  Something's not right; Can you help me with this please?

Answers

What is on those partitions and or the partition you want to split in two?
If you don't have any data on partitions or if you can save it someplace else for the time being then why not just Re-Partition the whole drive into the sizes you now want.
