Are you putting the Micro SD card into an SD Card caddie ? I ask incase you've got the tiny "lock" switch on the side set to lock

I looked at that and its saying device successfully formatted but when i check it its still saying its exfat
If it’s saying successfully formatted is it working? Ie recorded files are on there? Is there a need to format tp fat32. I have seen cameras use exfat before without issue. I can’t comment further on the camera without the model number.
