Default Can't un/mount SD Card, but still usable

Hello,

I am trying to remount my SD Card, so I could fix the "Couldn't Install on USB Storage or SD Card" error on the playstore.
But the problem is that when I try to unmount it on Settings > Storage, options are greyed out and I cannot press it.

So if I scroll down on the storage settings and I go to the SD CARD section, it shows the Total Space which is 1.84GB, and available space, which is also 1.84GB. Doesn't that mean my SD is in fact working correctly? The only option I see is Mount SD Card. But that option is grayed out and I can't press on it.

I have tried formatting the SD card from my computer to FAT32. Still same problem.
I can also put movies, music etc onto the SD Card, and yes they work.

Now i'm just confused on why I can't remount my SD Card.

Any ideas?


thanks

Okay, so I tried the steps, and no errors were found...
But when I go to Settings > Storage, my USB Storage has been detected as a Internal Storage. So now it says I have two internal storage, and no SD Card and USB Storage.

Before I tried the steps, I had 1 internal and 1 usb storage
