How do I set it to get the full 8mb.s? I have tried the RAW setting, but the file sizes are only 6 mb

Just because the XT has 8 megapixels doesn't mean that each picture takes up 8 megabytes of space.

The RAW files are (losslessly) compressed, much like the contents of a zip-file. The amount of compression possible depends on the subject, hence the RAW files usually are less than 8 MB and vary in size.
