I just used my SD card today. Put some movies on it and watched it. Then came home to put more stuff on it and when i put it in my pc it says need to be formatted. So i tried just putting it back in my device to not worry about it right now. It now says its blank! I try putting it back in my pc to format it. And my option is only giving me 30.1mb when the card is 32gb. Anyway i can restore my card?? Had lots of pictures, movies, and games stored on it.

USB memory sticks can be fragile, SD cards are even worse.

For the price they are these days Aukake I suggest obtaining a new USB stick rather than another SD card.

Oh I see, we are talking about a micro SD card yes which then goes into an SD card adaptor if you want to insert it into your pc yes?

Yes, Sorry for not being more specific. at this point i just want to format it again so i can use it, but it wont format. No matter what program i use or try to do to format it. it says its 30.1mb when its 32gb i mainly just want to be able to use it again.

It may well be that the Micro SD card is fine and the connector strips on the SD adaptor are faulty.

Have you tried any other adaptors with the Micro card?

Ok

Then it's reasonable to assume the Micro SD card is faulty and that it's time for a new one.
