    So, I need to convert a 512 GB SDXC card to FAT32, and I found guiformat.exe, which everyone uses. But when i tried it, it WOULD not format, and i have no idea why that is! I did everything the tutorial said to do, and I didn't mess around with any unneccesary files. I'd love some help, since I haven't gotten and cannot get this program to work. Please and Thanks! fucking_hell.

    Fake cards work but only to a extent, for example that card could literally have only 2-4gb of actually space that work but it's spoofed in a way that our shows 500+

    Ok... But before we can troubleshoot properly knowing if it is can help. I'd suggest h2test to test the card to see

    You already said you have no idea what the problem could be.

    Why not get h2testw, and verify that the capacity is what you expect?

    512GB microSD Card’s do exist, but I vaguely recall them costing over $400.

    But even if you got it from a reputable vendor, I would still test it with h2testw to make sure the capacity is correct and that the access speeds aren’t causing a problem.

    Post the results and we can troubleshoot from there. Note that for a SD card of this capacity, it can take a few hours to test, depending on access speeds. Best to let it run overnight.

    Just curious how much you spent? , base on how much you spent on it we could conclude if it real or fake pretty much.
