Default 32gb sd... Help?! [FIXED]

Hi, so today every time i would boot up my phone i noticed it took a really long time to recognize the SD card (32 GB SanDisk class 4 micro SDHC). Later in the day, aka a few hours ago, I rebooted my phone and it flat wont recognize the card is there. I've tried formatting through my computer, still didn't recognize the card was there. I tried formatting through cwm 5.5.x recovery and all i get is an error saying it cannot mount the SD. The only time i could even get it to recognize the card it said it was either blank or written in an unreadable filesystem, so i clicked format, but it seems not to format the card. I tried popping in a blank 4GB (micro SDHC class 4) i had laying around, and it worked no problem.

PLEASE HELP!!! I cannot fit my 14GB of Music on my tiny 4BG SD!!!

Thank you to anyone who responds in advance

!!!! Update!!!!!
Fixed!

I used the format SD program in the link provided by 216Monster below.
This program takes hours (I did a full format) but it works!

Please don't be afraid to hit the thanks button!

Download SD Formatter from https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_3/ and see if that works for you, might end up with the same results.

Also did you try sd card in something other then your phone to make sure its not faulty?

Pretty sure the class is one of the factors that determine if the SD card will work with your phone. 16 SD here.

Can you post detailed information on how you did it? Override? Did you marked format size?
