My micro 64G SanDisk only reads a few kilobytes. it if for my Go Pro Camera. It's brand new but when I put it in the camera it says no SD card. When I take it to my computer, it shows the DCIM folder. It won't let me format it or restore to default. just shows 512 bytes 1.00MB. My other 16GB card of a different brand works fine.  Any help for this?

Thanks

Is it a new or old card?

If it's new, it's possible you've been sold a counterfeit card.  It will appear to be 64GB, but in reality will be much smaller, and may give issues on your camera.

If it's old, it's very possible that the card has failed.  I have had a number of flash drives fail in the manner you describe.

Yes, It is brand new. Amazon is usually reputable. That's a lot of money to have it fail.

It's probably just a bad card.  See about returning it and getting a replacement.
