Looks like a microSD card issue to me rather than a kitkat cause.

Try to format the card on your PC and reuse it again for a few days to check before putting your valuable files on it.

I tried right now but my pc can't format it, it don't let me select the type of format like ntfs or fat32, that part is blank and the formating can't be performed, but thank you for the tip

I've just recovered a 32Gb MicroSD that wouldn't show at all on my tablets or phones, and showed on my PC as unknown "RAW" format of 33Mb capacity.

I tried every thing to get this card working again and finally came across this website : www.sdcard.org

They have a utility for windows that will ignore the format/capacity of the card reported by windows and repair the card - worked for me first time - is slow though, I chose the complete write option just to be sure the card was properly formatted.

Hope this helps
