I have a 32 GB sandisk SD card. I used it for a while in my phone, and I put some music on it. Later I put it in an old samsung phone I had laying around. The old (2006) phone said it needed to format the sd card first. I clicked accept. Now the sdcard became useless.

I have already used the Disks utility. It gives an error (first image)

GParted says "opperation complete" but after It re-scans the drives, it says that the filesystem is unknown again. Even after repeating the proces multiple times in a row. (Second image)

The computer does recognize the size of the sdcard though.

Anyone with more ideas as to how to make this sd card useable again?!

You can see the 2GB tag in the background of the disks image, that is another drive, not the one with the issue

    try to create a new partition table, then again with gparted, create new FAT partition – cmak.fr Aug 13 at 20:44
