"I have a 1GB micro SD card. When I inserted it to my smartphone, I can only see 80MB space and I cannot access the card. Connecting it to my laptop, it also only has 80MB space and Windows asks me to format the card. If I select to format the card on the laptop, Windows will pop up another message that Windows was unable to complete the format. If I format the micro SD card by inserting it back to my phone, it will say the formatting is successfully, but I cannot see this card. If I turn off my phone and reinsert the micro SD card, I still meet the same problem that the card only has 80MB left. Please show me the solution to fix the error and get back files from the card."
