    So I'm on Android Marshmallow on Motorola Moto G3(2015) and have formatted my SD card as internal storage. Its not working after a month now for some unknown reasons. i do not care about the data. i want my SD card to be normal as like when i bought it. how to do so ?

    The mobile is not able to recognize it or reformat it as internal storage/portable storage .

    When formatting to internal again this message comes : attempt to invoke virtual method 'java.lang.String android.os.storage.VolumeInfo.getId()' on a null object reference.

    When formatting to portable it says : done
    but still unable to view/use it .Android 6.0 SD card REformat-gpt.png

    I've been searching all over the place to solve problems occurring after upgrading (?) from Lollipop to Marshmallow. One thing I saw said that if you format the SD card as internal storage, it deletes your original internal storage, substituting the SD cards capacity. Also, the SD card contents will no longer be readable on your PC, or for that matter anything else but the phone. Also seems this may be irreversible. In other words, you may be screwed. It raises the question, "Why format as internal, altho' it sounds like it should be a good idea?"

    What brand is your sd card? Where did you buy it?

    Use sd insight to check if your card is legit.
