    Yes it is FAT32 Yes my computer can read it. Might it be that my wii u cannot read sd cards at all?

    I don't have any answer for you, but you could give a lot more details so someone can help you.
    E.g.:

    I have tried the following SD-cards:
    1. xxx brand, UHS-yy speed, zz GB in size.
    2. ...

    My Wii U is (not)modded, and it is in FW version xx.
    These same SD-cards worked (or they didn't work) before.
    At some time in the past I have tried (or not) some other SD cards on this Wii U and then they (did/didn't) work.
    etc...

    well i had a issue with only one of my micro sd to standard sd adapters, i have to put a small piece of paper between the top of the slot to keep it jammed in, just a quick fix until i get another adapter.

    At least one of those should work. That is weird.
    Just for kicks, try putting some opaque duct tape over the "lock" slider of that microSD adapter, and plug it in.

    Without modding, SD cards on WiiU are kinda useless, the WiiU won't recognize it as extra storage. To test if they are reading properly, you can launch MiiMaker and try to do something with the SD options, launch WiiMode and try to do something there, or try and run Homebrew Launcher or Loadiine on the SD using some exploits.

    Feel free to read some of the stickies on this forum section, but the general process involves you putting some files on your SD and then going to a website to run some exploits to run those files.

    This is probably gonna sound stupid, but try blowing into the SD slot. There might be dust or something, the slot is quite bad.

    can't he just open Data Management from the Wii mode and see if it can see the SD card?
    and excuse me if it's been mentioned in your posts already, but how did you notice that your Wii U cannot read the SD card?

    Steps to solve this problem, put a paper on ur sd slot, make sure it gets to the bottom of the slot
    Now insert an sd card over the paper, inside the slot
    And just keep inserting / re inserting the sd card for a minute, (cleaning method)
    And finally reinsert the sd card without the paper..
    Done, i recommend that you clean ur sd with alcohol in the future for better results
