    Welcome to the forum

    Obviously that isn't even logical.;) Have you tried to get your phone to reformat the card? My guess is that the file system is corrupted.

    I don't think so. You didn't try formatting it in your phone, did you? I'm afraid what you are looking at is not a microSD card. If it is, which I seriously doubt, use Windows' native format utility..

    It's native, which means you don't need to download it. Since you were in disk properties, get in with the SD card out, then exit, insert the disk and look again. If it looks like you are looking at the SD card, right click in the formatted section and click format.

    I have to be honest that what you displayed from your computer doesn't even look close to what an SD card should look like.

    If that doesn't do it I'm out of suggestions.

    The micro sd card is in a converter that inverts to USB instead of sd adapter

    Well, I don't think that's logical SD card is of 32GB and space 2TB ??? o_O Try formatting the SD card again and if that still doesn't fixe the issue then I would say the SD card must be having 2TB of storage start enjoying it ! :p
